A long interview about my work with the Bodycoder System appears in this new title Body As Instrument out in February 2022 (Bloomsbury). The book explores how musicians interact with movement-controlled performance systems, producing sounds imbued with their individual physical signature. Interviews with influential artists in the field, Laetitia Sonami, Pamela Z, Julie Wilson-Bokowiec, Lauren Sarah Hayes, etc, expose the transformational impact of motion sensors on musicians' body awareness and abilities. The book analyses how the body as instrument metaphor informs relationships between performers, their bodies and self-designed instruments. It also examines the role of experiential design strategies in developing robust and nuanced gestural systems that mirror a performer's movement habits, preferences and skills, inspiring new physical forms of musical communication and diverse musical repertoire.
