Abstract

Freqtric Drums is a new musical, corporal electronic instrument that allows us not only to recover face-to-face communication, but also makes possible body-to-body communication so that a self image based on the sense of being a separate body can be significant altered through an openness to and even a sense of becoming part of another body. Freqtric Drums is a device that turns audiences surrounding a performer into drums so that the performer, as a drummer, can communicate with audience members as if they were a set of drums. We describe our concept and the implementation and process of evolution of Freqtric Drums.
