Concept

A movement performance for four performers. The goal was to perform a composed piece of music through interactive sound triggers.

Engineers Notes:

When we started developing interactive technologies back in 1995, we were experimenting with various approaches. Based on the video triggers introduced in the Eyecon software, Minotaur was the most complex piece we made using simple sound triggers. It took us several weeks to find ways how to perform Erlings music through trigger lines on the video image.
