The Sonotrope is a Virtual Reality installation and performance tool, a spatial music creation and playback system for sound-artist and dancers. It enables one to capture movement as tracks of music, resulting in an interactive music sculpture, a 3D crystallized composition as recorded multi track sound score constellation with a significant visual idiom.
Synaesthesis is the title of a performance based on the Sonotrope installation or system. It shows the confrontation of an on stage creating sound-artist and two seemingly intrusive dancers.
The Sonotrope had it's first improvised performance during Cinedans 2019 at Eye Film Museum in Amsterdam (see documentation below).
