I couldn’t think of a better word than autobiometric to describe an idea I had in the shower, and I’d love to hear any of your thoughts on this topic:
A musical performance wherein electrodes are hooked up to monitor my pulse, which is then used as a CV gate or clock, which then guides the rhythm of the modular synth. Perhaps then my breath is used as another CV, which affects a different set of modules. I could, for example, hyperventilate myself through rapid breathing to intensify the performance, or slow my breath and thusly my heart to slow things down.
My questions: HOW would this work, functionally? Like, what interface would be needed between my body and the modules? I can’t be the first person to conceive of this, so what are similar examples of this kind of biologically driven performance? What is lacking in my vocabulary to understand and explain this? What other biometrics could be utitilized? Perspiration? Hormones??
Thanks for indulging my mind’s shower wanderings!
