e-Dance project kicks off

As part of a national programme to exploit e-science technologies in the Arts & Humanities, we are extending our Memetic toolkit for recording, replaying and annotating dance sessions in the Access Grid, to create tools for choreographers to rehearse and perform distributed compositions. The KMi component is extending and integrating Hypermedia Discourse tools such as Compendium and Cohere.

Last week we had our first Sandpit, in which the technologists and choreographers swapped worlds to learn more about each other. Read all about it on the e-Dance blog…
