The merger of virtual, augmented and interactive technology has been revolutionizing our life, including performing arts, contributing to the social transformation and leading towards new ways of thinking and placing artistic practice. Advanced digital technologies offer artists devices able to capture instrumental gestures and to generate from this tactile input, sonic and visual outputs.
What is the role of gestural interaction to enhance today’s music expression? How can a vocabulary of sonified and visual gestures - categorized by using digital technology - facilitate the fruition of contemporary music and the participatory audience engagement, especially in remote conditions?
In combining art-science-technology, the multidisciplinary project T*ActiLE:Technology and Action-led Experience wants to explore gestural interaction and technological applications as a performative-based tool to develop expressiveness and creativity in contemporary music performance. A categorization of gestural interaction archived and translated with a proper score annotation and technical parameters will be elaborated as outcomes to be used by other artist-researchers, performers and composers.
Pioneering performative paradigms on the role of gestural interaction will be outlooks of this multidisciplinary research that will contribute to opening new horizons in tomorrow's music performance research.
