Capturing Stillness

Posted by: admin on: January 21, 2013

Capturing Stillness at the Palais De Danse drop-in Salon

Coventry University – 21st February 5-7 pm

Capturing Stillness uses performance capture and computer game worlds to create transformative experiences derived from Skinner Releasing Technique and its poetics. For this presentation Ruth Gibson and Bruno Martelli will describe the project’s background and context, commenting on their current artistic practice & their future residency at CAFKA/Christie Digital Systems in Canada – where they will be developing immersive stereo 3D environments with the aim of creating a kinaesthetic code.

Movements in Music Education:
The First International Conference of Dalcroze Studies

24 – 26 July 2013
Coventry University, UK

In recent years there has been an upsurge in the academic study of embodiment and the centrality of movement and rhythm in music cognition, education and performance. This conference seeks to extend our understanding of Dalcroze Eurhythmics from these and a wide variety of other perspectives: historical, cultural, socio-political, theoretical, philosophical and empirical. It also seeks to promote interdisciplinary dialogue between researchers into Dalcroze Eurhythmics and those from a wide field of related disciplines and practices. Read the rest of this entry »

Choreographic Language Presentation

Nick Rothwell and Scott deLahunta

Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE) Research Events

ICE, Coventry University, UK

Wednesday 23rd May 2012; 17.30-19.00

The Choreographic Language Agent (CLA) is a choreographic software system designed in collaboration with London-based choreographer Wayne McGregor as a creative tool for investigating and generating choreographic ideas in the studio. The CLA builds on McGregor’s ongoing research into the development of Choreographic Thinking Tools through collaborative work with cognitive scientists. Also formative to the development of the CLA has been a focused research into how computation and embodied practice can creatively intersect and includes a close collaboration with Marc Downie of the OpenEnded Group (, who has worked extensively with other choreographers including Merce Cunningham and Trisha Brown. The user interface for the CLA has been built inside Field, Downie’s open-source environment for developing digital artworks. For this presentation, Rothwell & deLahunta will describe the project background and context, show evidence from the studio-based work and talk about future plans for the CLA.

Location-Based Storytelling Symposium

18 June 2012

In Association with the Narrative Research Group (NRG) and Centre for Excellence in Media Practice (CEMP), Bournemouth Media School

The Executive Business Centre
Bournemouth University
89 Holdenhurst Road

This symposium responds to the recent upsurge in interest in harnessing mobile technologies and mapping tools for the purposes of storytelling. Whether this involves extending our experience of existing storyworlds or creating innovative spaces for users to explore, such narratives can be potentially empowering, both in the sense of reconnecting with public places and community histories, and in terms of opening up familiar stories to new audiences and new interpretations.

Multimodal Methodologies Seminar

Seminar: 14th May 2012

Multimodality, Mixed methods and Interdisciplinarity: The case of Children’s Playground games

This seminar will draw on a series of large datasets generated by the recent AHRC-funded project Children’s Playground Games and Songs in the age of New Media (

This seminar will consider how these forms of digital data can be analysed using multimodal approaches. These will attend to the modes of communication and expression involved (games, performance, dance, song); to the embodied nature of these modes; to the material media involved and the meanings these contribute. They will also consider how the meanings made in the particular cultural moment incorporate or transform earlier meanings, whether those carried from game movements, words and music from decades earlier or those derived from contemporary media forms (film, computer games, television).

Time, Motion Capture, The Body

Posted by: admin on: January 21, 2012

Involuntary Drawing: Time, Motion Capture, The Body

Saturday 18 February 2012, 1 – 6pm, followed by a reception

The Boardroom,
University of Westminster,
309 Regent Street,

This half-day symposium concerns the ‘optical unconscious’ of movement captured by machines; from the earliest experiments of chronophotography to the latest motion capture technology, as well as by the automatisms of gesture. The artists discussed are interested in making visible motion that would otherwise be invisible – such as sound waves, trajectories of movement over time, or a ‘bodily unconscious’. They track movement in the form of photographic or graphic traces. Some artists work with devices originally designed for medical observations, such as the cardiogram or electroencephalogram. In all cases, the trace is one involuntarily laid down — a shadow cast by something below the level of consciousness. This event is supported by the AHRC Centre for the Study of Surrealism and its Legacies. Read the rest of this entry »
