            Abstract

            FiddleLights is a body of practice-based research exploring the kinetic signatures of fiddle tunes in relation to the sound produced by the bow on the fiddle. Experimenting with photography, video, and computer enhanced compositing, FiddleLights creates light-based visualisations of movement and technique captured from the bow-hand of individual fiddlers, resulting in kinetic signatures of individual tunes, and kinetic portraits of the fiddlers, themselves. This technique is then used to inform musical compositions to create improvised musical performances of light and sound.
