Rebody, 2010


Rebody (2010) by Gerhard Eckel, Michael Schwab und David Pirrò is a video and an installation piece in which the captured motion of a dancer is transformed into a dynamic drawing that informs a musical composition. The piece explores the dance movements, the drawing algorithms and the musical structures in an attempt to create aesthetic resonances and convergences. The work investigates how structured creative processes can transpose rather than represent the dancer's movements. Rebody is based on motion-capture data collected from Bodyscapes (2009), an intermedial dance solo performance by Valentina Moar (choreography/dance), Gerhard Eckel and David Pirrò (composition).
