Multi-Node Shell is a performance by Luca Pagan and presented by Umanesimo Artificiale, which utilizes biosensors to explore sound potential as a language through body movement perception. Neural networks process sensor data, serving a dual role: teaching the machine expressive body-sound associations and recognizing behavioral states affecting software and sound. When encountering new gestures, distinct from previous training, the software produces unexpected sound results, rendering the machine “creative” in its own right.
