The interactive music series Culture is the Body is a response to the Japanese theatre director Tadashi Suzuki’s book of the same title. Suzuki’s insistence on the use of animal energy in theatre impactfully calls for a re-evaluation of our relationship with our body in the modern world. Interactive music presents the possibility of bridging technology and our body. Body movements trigger microscopic data streams, which instantly transform into sounds. This process of turning body movements directly into corresponding musical expressions encourages a stronger body awareness.
