Live EDM Stage Performance 2.0

Advaita means nondual or “not two.” This oneness is a fundamental quality of everything. Everything is a part of and made of one nondual conciousness. We set out to explore and create realtime motion capture controlled visuals for Chagall’s new show. In Advaita audio and video are manifested in real-time, either directly from the movement of the body or driven by commands generated from gesture recognition.

In traditional EDM performances the music artist mostly interacts with buttons and screen-based interfaces, taking away from her interaction with the audience. In Advaita there are no interfaces blocking the connection between performer and audience. It is the performer’s (non-) choreographed movement that connect her to both the technology and the audience. What results is a synergy of movement, music and visual effects performance that is understood intuitively and emotionally.
