In the context of the Motion-Enabled Live-Electronics workshop held as part of the impuls 2009 International Ensemble- and Composer-Academy for Contemporary Music, six works of composers from Germany, Italy, Hollland, Belgium and Japan have been produced and premiered in a concert in the CUBE at IEM on February 22nd 2009. This concert was streamed to the Kunsthaus Graz and to IRCAM at the Pompidou Centre in Paris in the context of the EU Culture 2007 project CO-ME-DI-A.

PhysioSonic uses movement sonification as intuitive and motivating feedback in physiotherapy. PhysioSonic has been evaluated in a small study on 12 patients with limited shoulder mobility. The study has been carried our at Orthopaedic Hospital Theresienhof in Frohnleiten, Austria. The results show a clear benefit for most patients, who also report on PhysioSonic being an enrichment of their therapy. With PhysioSonic, the patient triggers and controls sound parameters with his or her movement within a pre-set range of motion. The resulting acoustic feedback enhances proprioception and the awareness of the body movements. It has been proven quite efficient for applications in physiotherapy and other training contexts.
