Visiting researcher Yago de Quay and fourMs PhD student Ståle Skogstad and Postdoc Alexander Refsum Jensenius have published a paper in Leonardo Music Journal:

ABSTRACT: The authors present an experimental musical performance called Dance Jockey, wherein sounds are controlled by sensors on the dancer's body. These sensors manipulate music in real time by acquiring data about body actions and transmitting the information to a control unit that makes decisions and gives instructions to audio software. The system triggers a broad range of music events and maps them to sound effects and musical parameters such as pitch, loudness and rhythm.
