[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Bill Meadows – The Language Of Dream

Artist Statement


The Language of Dream is an electroacoustic performance piece using a system of laser beams and optical sensors to detect the gestures of a performer. Signals are sent to a computer which responds by initiating various sound events. The laser beams originate at a point above and behind the performer, and are directed toward sensors along the front edge of the stage. This forms an angled, fan-shaped array of beams that provides the audience with strong visual feedback relating the gestures to the sound.
