At the convergence of advanced biomedical scientific research in contemporary art with technoscience collaborative practices, as well as with transdisciplinar issues regarding the human condition and the reinvented life, we propose a biocybrid system using electromyography and body signals for the new perceptive, cognitive and technological expansion and the sensorial domain of synesthesia. The electrical potentials and introspective mapping and tracing of body activities in electromyography translated into sonic landscapes and data visualization by using electrical signals generated by in-activity muscles and collected by specific instrumentation equipment are widely used in biomedical engineering and medicine. The system entails new ways of deciphering human ways of acting, by using bodily muscles in microscales, by allowing the perception and communication for generating sound patterns and data visualization landscapes that dynamically change according to several properties extracted from electromyographic (EMG) signals. We also intend future application of our prototype for industrial technological innovations and affective interfaces for medice, health and fitness, art and neuroscience and other domain.
