The EvoMove system is a motion-based musical companion that relies on a commensal computing scheme.

The system relies on wireless sensors to detect dancer moves. The sensor information is sent to KymeroClust, an evolutionary algorithm that identifies and maintains a clustering model of the move categories. The system uses this information to play audio samples according to the detected categories.

These categories are not predefined, but are built dynamically by clustering the stream of data coming from the motion sensors.

The EvoMove system has been tested by different users with promising feedbacks.
