Title: The augmented performer in contemporary Opera : A Case Study
Issue Date: 2017-07-19
Description: The practical scope of this dissertation is study the development and implementation, since the creative process of an opera production, wearable technologies on one or more singers/musicians to control certain musical and visual elements on stage in order to analyse and study approaches for DMI development and mapping, data visualisation, real-time voice processing and digital scenography focused on stage-based performances. Furthermore, the project it aims to shed light on methodologies for rehearsing, staging and performing with these technologies.
 The technology used is a wearable data glove with pressure sensing and inertial measuring units, communicating wirelessly to a computer system that maps the data onto high-level information to be used with audiovisual software. The proposed device his implemented in a opera, layout out in an conventional way, which introduces wearable technology as a strategy for augmenting it's narrative through the use of audiovisual apparatus. The main objective is to put the technology in function of the narrative and extract an analysis on the advancements of expanding a somewhat conventional production to a multimedia Opera, and study its impact on artists expectations, creativity and performing achievements. We take in account variables such as technological application strategies, production challenges, performing effort and interrelation between performers and digital media.
