Firewire

firewireFirewire is an interactive work for firedancer and live signal processing. The firedancer (poi dancer) wears wireless microphones on the shoulders. These microphones pick up the sound of the spinning fire, amplify it, and send it into the computer for processing. The piece is an improvisation for the dancer, as well as the computer performer. A paper documenting the performance was published in the Organised Sound Journal (Cambridge University Press). The original performer was Cori Lee Stalacker.
