Genesis is a dance performance with reactive music that depicts the concept of the empowerment in self-realization. A single dancer is embeded with sensors that detect her movement and muscle activity. Music is synthesized in real-time, and data from the sensors is used to control various aspects of the sound. The dancer's movement represents a metaphorical birth, which analogized her realization that she has the power to control her physical and auditory environment.
