Running Expressions is a real-time performance composition for heart-rate monitor, two Nintendo Wiimotes, and two dual-axis accelerometers. By capturing live physiological data, music is created and controlled within an 8-channel and video projection environment. The musical performance narrates a distance run, the psychological and emotional impacts of a running experience.
How was MAX used?
I used Max/MSP/Jitter for three distinct purposes. Max/MSP/Jitter collects and modifies data received from the heart rate monitor, Nintendo Wiimotes, and accelerometers, Max controls musical parameters inside the Kyma environment via OSC and MIDI messages, and lastly Jitter controls the video projections.
