Abstract
In this study we focus on the sonification of Samba dance, using a multi-modal analysis-by-synthesis approach. In the analysis we use periodic pattern analysis to decompose the Samba dance movements into basic movement gestures along the music’s metric layers. In the synthesis we start from the basic movement gestures and extract peaks and valleys, which we use as basic material for the sonification. This leads to a matrix of repetitive dance gestures from which we select the proper cues that trigger samples of a Samba ensemble. The straightforward sonification procedure suggests that Samba rhythms may be mirrored in choreographic forms or vice-versa.
