With the rapid progress of digital technologies and their integration into many applications and devices, it is becoming increasingly complex to link them together and exchange data. Applications of music, moving images, theatre, dance, performances and art installations pose a challenging communication problem to connect both hardware and software with different demands on different messaging protocols. This project investigates real-time messaging methods that combine sensors, actuators, light, sound, image and motion into an integrated live presentation of audio, visual and spatial performance.
