This concept has been developed jointly with a communication engineer, to extract shapes, mapping systems, and movement pattern from music.
After writing the musical notes as midi, those midi files have been decoded to its basic binary. Later according to the musical forms of each scene and its keys and cords, the binary has been coded as shapes or mapping system and movement patterns and integrated to the dramaturgy of the opera.
The concept is fully developed technically, but not refined to a premiere and have not been realised due to the cuts in budgets during the war.
