The DIEM Digital Dance system is an interface designed especially for interactive dance. The dancer wears up to 14 bending sensors that measure the angles of the dancer’s limbs.

The bending sensors are connected to a small wireless transmitter worn by the dancer on a belt. Data is transmitted to a receiver unit which sends standard MIDI controller values for each sensor.

The system can be used in any MIDI setup to control music or lighting in a dance performance. The system has been used by intrumentalists to control live computer processing in a concert performance.
