Effector//Attractor//Captor by Clovis McEvoy
Recorder, dancer and electronics
a muscle, gland, cell, etc. capable of responding to a stimulus.
a state or behaviour toward which a dynamic system tends to evolve, represented as a point or orbit in the system's phase space. System values that get close enough to the attractor values remain close even if slightly disturbed.
a person or animal that holds another captive.
Written for recorder, dancer, and electronics, this work explores the interaction and effect of one artistic entity upon another. Utilising high-accuracy motion tracking and live digital processing, the acoustic sound of the recorder is linked to and ultimately transformed by the physical actions of a dancer.
