It is not novel for multimedia performances to have a strong corporeal profile
primarily using gestures or actions coming from outside of the performer’s body.
However, the inside of the body can also be a very vital and diverse source
of material for artistic purposes. This approach changes the paradigm of the
gestural expression, bringing the processes going on under one’s skin to the fore.

BodyControlled #4 - Bio Interfacing presents three performances using data
collected from inside the human body:
the EEG waves-based audio-visual performance
INsideOUT by Claudia Robles Angel, Seas of Tranquility by Peter Kirn and Marco
Donnarumma’s Music for Flesh II, where sounds are produced - and controlled - by his muscles.

A keynote presented by Hasso-Plattner-Institute’s investigator Pedro Lopes discusses 
‘’Human-Computer Interaction: Artistic and Scientific perspectives on augmenting 
our bodies’’. In conjunction with the events of the performance night, anyone can learn more 
about the artists’ methods by taking part in the workshops presented by Claudia 
Robles Angel and Marco Donnarumma. Or, come to LEAP in the 2 evenings after the 
performance night, and try out the instruments on display at the Open Stage.
