Wearable Sensor-Based Real-Time Sonification of Motion and Foot Pressure in Dance Teaching and Training

As with tasks involved with motion and gesture, teaching dance can take advantage of auditory displays that map specific dance steps into their acoustic counterparts. Wearable sensors based on acoustic “fingerprints” accompany the dance movements in real-time. This kind of audio feedback has a positive influence on motor movement and perception. For example, joint angles, weight distribution, and energy of jumps are easily recognized through sound. With practice, a student can hear if a complex movement was correctly executed. The auditory system can hear complex patterns of rapid motion, especially aspects of a dance that are not easily seen.
