This is a collaborative piece with Patricia Brace that involves a rudimentary DIY motion tracking patch I created with PureData and a webcam. As Patricia moves in front of the camera while dancing, the software alters the sound based on the changes in her position.

The patch can be adapted to work with various types of audio, and was performed in multiple contexts. This work is a type of role reversal for dance: the sound changes in response to movement, rather than a dancer responding to music.
