Dance and interactive media attract and repel each other at the same time. The challenge is to create a synesthetic art piece, in wich both disciplines – however different their methods are – melt into one unique experience for the audience, that none of them could have caused on themselves. The Motion Memory Machine originated at this years DanceMediaAcademy and captures and remixes various visual samples of a dance performance by Malika Djardi. These samples are uploaded to the surface of a video sculpture by Stefan Kraus. The Videomapping was produced with an MXWendler FX Server. Marc Sauter has created a custom interactive soundtrack and programmed the synchronisation. Sebastian Häfele optimized his visual sampler software to be able to process 4 PAL cameras at the same time. The french dancer Malika Djardi studied dance and performing arts first in Lyon, then at the Centre National de Danse Contemporaine in Angers, France. In her works, she explores contemporary dance as a medium of documentation. Fragments of gestures, images, sounds and histories are used to transform memories into choreographies.
