Abstract: After a short reflection on theories of the digital and non-digital, this essay is concerned with questions of common perception, un-common senses and a strong focus on kinaesthetic, trans-sensorial notions of ex-stasis, and the material affects of environments. The author discusses examples drawn from atmospheric studies, architecture and choreographic objects, as well as the design of wearables used in sensorial performance environments which themselves are conceived as formative, not built or constructed in a stable form. Furthermore, basing its investigation of such elemental environments and aural choreographies in recent productions of the DAP-Lab, the essay explores the impact of wearables on movement choreography and immersion within choreographic installations. It also addresses more speculative developments of how bodies and wearables come to affect, and be affected by, augmented reality and virtual reality interfaces within kinetic atmospheres – here called “kimospheres” – in the sense in which the composer Xenakis had envisioned reverberant multimedia architectures and spatial intensities to be live instruments, not static objects or envelopes.
