Abstract

The role of spatial design in music has become more prominent in recent years mostly because of the affordability of powerful software and hardware tools. Spatial design tools for electroacoustic and computer music are widely used nowadays in studio and concert environments with very few examples of applications for dance and theatre performance. An innovative wireless body worn loudspeaker system for dance performance is proposed including original features for cabinet design, frequency response and power performance taking into account acoustical and artistic considerations for performance. Future developments of the designed system are outlined considering the possibility of expanding it into an extended integrated performance platform.
