electroacoustic music, belly dancer, RAKS system

Teka-Mori fuses choreography and computer-generated sound through human-computer interaction. Teka refers to the vocalization of two different drum strokes on a doumbek (Egyptian tablah). Mori, from the Latin phrase memento mori, evokes an image of decay and lifelessness. Teka-Mori revitalizes the often-disembodied interaction between physical gesture and sound production. The RAKS system provides compositional agency to the dancer, connecting the choreographic gesture and sonic outcome.
