Sound plays on its own accord whilst examining and tracking the human skeleton, reacting to each person's movement. During this deep listening experience the performative object (the sound) is interchangeable with the performative subject (the human). Sound is imagined as an intelligent actant and life force, in two-way conversation with each human that enters.

Corporeality is a performance using a data tracking system combined with a musical coding environment. With each gesture of the human body variables are affected in the modulation of sound. The speakers themselves stand on legs at human height, embodied as a life form. An accompanying film demonstrates in realtime how the sound both affects and is affected by the dancers or human participants.
