Skye Reynolds

Skye Reynolds is Dance Artist in Residence with Imaginate, North Edinburgh Arts and Dance Base. Over the past 18 months she has been developing ways to create interactive dance experiences via sound technology. This journey has included a variety of explorations and is currently focused on using the ‘Wii’ to compose music in performance. To achieve these ends Skye has collaborated with sound designers and programmers, most of whom hail from The Edinburgh University Music Department. She is currently working on ‘Transmission,’ a dance installation for young people in which the performers wear Wiis pre-programmed with sound, and via the choreographic structures also compose the score in real time. The work includes an interactive element in which the audience are invited to touch and move the dancers and thereby help to create an original soundscape.
