This concept has been developed jointly with a communication engineer to extract shapes, mapping systems, and movement patterns from music.
We analyzed transformed music notes to Midi; those midi files have been decoded to their 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 systems and movement patterns and integrated into the dramaturgy of the opera.
