In collaboration with tap dancer Marije Nie, I created interactive software called Homunculus that reacts on the input of the musician. Homunculus is fully written in Max/MSP and is able to analyse sounds and patterns live. The program measures musical parameters like rhythm, speed variations, repetition, clusters, volume etc. and creates live effect processing and live sampling on the fly. With the glove, the performer is able to communicate with the software to set different ‘moods’ of how homunculus should react to user input. In this way, the musician is able to improvise with herself.
