Further to our post from some weeks back, Reactor for Awareness in Motion (RAM) by Yoko Ando and YCAM is now available for download. Briefly, RAM Dance Toolkit is a C++ creative coding toolkit (openFrameworks) to create environments for dancers. RAMDanceToolkit is created by YCAM InterLab, including Yoshito Onishi, Satoru Higa, Motoi Shimizu and Kyle McDonald.
This toolkit contains a GUI and functions to access, recognise, and process motion data to support creation of various environmental conditions (called “scene”) and gives realtime feedbacks to dancers using code in an easy way. Toolkit uses openFrameworks, which means users can use functions from both RAM Dance Toolkit and openFrameworks. There are also applications for Windows and Mac where users can choreograph or rehearse with previously programmed scenes.
