[ISEA2006] Artist Statement: Cobi van Tonder – Skatesonic performance

Artist Statement

Performance, Parkside Courtyard

Skatesonic is a project that involves a uniquely augmented skateboard called “the Lickr”. The Lickr has its ear close to the ground and it hears in audio and data. Each move is analyzed and translated into musical parameters and the rider ends up skating through a landscape of music (which s/he influences over time).
