Dance4 associate and performance artist Guy Dartnell, acoustic specialist Dirk Puschel and myself have been involved in research, using voice-movement techniques combined with exciting new acoustic equipment and software, so far only used in the aircraft and car industries.
The idea is to see if a deaf person might be able to develop their feeling about, connection to and use of their own voice in such a way that it becomes a ‘soundtrack’ to their own movement. Also, through visual mapping of vocal sounds on video images, can another layer be added to the experience of deaf and hearing audiences in relationship to sound lead movement?
