Out of the Wings and Onto the Web
"Goosebumps" is a smart artefact that serves to increase the engagement and interaction that a musician has with their audience in an online performance space.
It will make online musical performance a more immersive experience and ensure that there is less friction for musicians to communicate with their audiences.
The artefact should capture the emotional reactions of the audience to establish a connection that is often missing in online spaces, serving to support and uplift the performance of the musician.
Our concept will be successful when the musicians feel they can attribute the output of the artefact to their audience, creating an almost frictionless, real-time feedback mechanism.
For us it was important to make the temperature feedback something the performer can actually feel.
After testing it out ourselves we got the impression that this was something feasible to achieve with the equipment we had at hand.
