Triggered examines the nature of electronic and digital interfaces for musical expression through the specific use of sensors the data from which is used to control multiple (and changing) musical parameters as developed using the music and audio language SuperCollider which provides a structured environment essential for developments such as this. With rehearsal, these devices enable levels of expression and diversity not generally available using conventional electronic and digital interfaces, the latter too frequently being restricted to the direct control of a limited number of musical parameters. The combination of specific hardware design and algorithmic manipulation brings particular interest and benefit to the activity, especially when combined with the expressive potential of dance and movement. The way that dancers interact with prototypical interfaces comprising clusters of sensors generating music algorithmically provides a method of investigating human actions in this environment. This is achieved through collaborative work involving software and hardware design, musical composition, sculpture and choreography.
