Title Enhancing the Performer-Spectator Communication at Electronic Concerts
Author(s) Hólmgeirsson, Jón Helgi
Date 2015
English abstract
During the traditional electronic musical performances there is a lack of communication between the performer and spectator. Communication is necessary to a performance as it is a social act, created both by the performer, as well as the spectator. Through exploring the augmentation of visibility and physicality in regards to the electronic performance I attempt to enhance that communication through a concept called Sonicality, created out of the findings of this paper, that addresses the use of tactile vibrations, controlled by a performer in a visible manner, received on the spectator’s body, in relation to the music heard. Through the validation of this concept I manage to get an insight into the spectators’ needs and desires, grounding the validity of the concept as something that augments experience, interaction and understanding, enhancing the performer-spectator communication.
