hannah buckley 'quiet genius' character
We decided from the outset to develop the musical interface through a series of co-creative movement workshops with dancers. Each retractable module that made up the instrument would be created around a character, which would define its sound, shape and behaviour. 10 characters were devised and dancers Holly Miller and Hanna Buckley, responded to them through movement.
We then gathered the both dancers responses to the workshop, and took note of our own observations, and created a personality maps for each character. These maps where used by Dave to start creating sound pallets that would begin to define the personalities in intricate detail.
