Resumen

After producing ground-breaking computer-based tools to advance the study of human movement, such as the video-visualization techniques contained in the Musical-Gestures Toolbox, Alexander Refsum Jensenius has con-tinued to find more creative and analytical possibilities to intersect our understandings of music and dance. In the current context of technology-assisted misappropriation of tradi-tional songs and dances, I interviewed the Deputy Director of the RITMO Centre on how we might revert the link between new technol-ogies and intangible cultural heritage for the benefit of legitimate bearers.

Furthermore, in this interview, Alexander out-lines the embodied and interdisciplinary ap-proach towards music that has grounded the course of his career but even more interesting-ly, he offers insights about the future of expe-riencing dance through technology and the possibility of dancing robots.

Biografía del autor/a

Jorge Poveda Yánez, Universidad de Roehampton

I am a 29 years old interdisciplinary professional from Ecuador interested in the intersection between human rights and the arts. After graduating from the Law Faculty (with Cum Laude distinction) and simultaneously from the Arts Faculty (with Suma Cum Laude honours), I decided to continue my preparation by enrolling on the master’s program regarding Intangible Cultural Heritage and Dance which I am currently working on at the University of Roehampton (UK). This has been the platform for me to come up with innovative strategies to engage the cultural heritage of communities as the basis for sustained development.
