“Using Sense/Stage in live performance and interactive, real-time environments”

The Sense/Stage infrastructure was developed to provide a low-cost, open source wireless sensing and data sharing framework for use in interactive artistic works. Since the original research-creation project, the infrastructure has been further developed and currently has a slowly growing user base across the world. New research and development directions are towards creating modules for analysing and mapping sensor data to various output media.


Marije Baalman is a artist and researcher/developer working in the field of interactive sound installations.

She studied Applied Physics at the Technical University in Delft and graduated in February 2002 on the topic of Perceptual Acoustics. In 2001/2002 she followed the Sonology Course at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. She completed her Ph.D. on Wave Field Synthesis and electro-acoustic music in 2007 at the Electronic Studio of the Technical University of Berlin. Between 2007 and 2010 she was a post-doctoral researcher in Computation Arts at Concordia University in Montreal. Since 2010 she works as a freelance artist and developer from Amsterdam and works as a hardware engineer at STEIM.

Her current research goes into the use of wireless networks for live performance (such as dance and music), installations and interactive environments.

She has performed and exhibited work across Europe (STEIM, WORM (NL), EXIT festival (F), Club Transmediale (D), Make Art (FR)) and beyond (Electrofringe (AU), Translife (CN), Elektra (CA)). She is a contributor to “The SuperCollider Book” (MIT Press, 2011).
To realise her works she mostly uses open source technology (software and hardware) and she is an active contributor to the open source community.
