Live Arts Lobby Vestibule street-facing window
Open to public & free through June 2021

Baïlaurâ considers frequency in four dimensions: sound, auratic energy, kinetic energy and a quantization of the subconscious. Designed with computer vision, machine learning and modular synthesis, bodily movements engage with the algorithms to explore new forms of electronic ritual and divination, and the relationship between sound and dance. In its simplest essence, movement in response to the synthesized soundscapes is converted into data and interpreted into a visual language for the viewer to decipher. This hands free interactive version is created specially for people passing in front of the vestibule at Live Arts and simplifies the experience to create a visual representation of movements through patterns and colors. The full version of Baïlaurâ is an expanded  web experience that can be played with on your own browser at home. Baïlaurâ is a commissioned by New York Live Arts Live Feed Residency Program.
