Terpsìphoné: pavimento interattivo.

Terpsìphoné is an interactive floor that ampifies and elaborates the sound of movement made on it. The aim is to find a connection between movement and sound, switching it.
The sound doesn' t cause the movement, just like dance, but the movement itself becomes music.
Moving on the floor, the user establishes an interaction that, at the beginning, is like a game of creative exploration, but it becomes a conscious involvement, like the instrumentalist with his own instrument. The only difference is that in this case the instrumentalist is any man without specific musical technique and the instrument is his own body.
