ScanAudience is a site-specific audio/video performance based on the realtime scanning of the spectators themselves, attending this live show. The project developed by Gianluca Sibaldi and  the duo SCHNITT ( Marco Monfardini and Amelie Duchow ) uses a specially by the artists developed electronic device: a scanner able to "read" any object, architecture or living being in its formal elements, translating the object's outer and inner dimension in sound and video images.  A bar of light is the primary tool in this operation of realtime scanning, overpassing in several sequences the audience , analyzing the characteristics related to people’s body shape, height, clothing color and material. The scanning process develops with a sequence of slow vertical and horizontal scannings, memorizing the basic data informations, continuing with detail and intense scanning sequences, the beamed light passes through the audience.

Each person generates their own individual sound and video images. The scanning process begins with beaming a very low speed structured light on the subject, recaptured by an high resolution sensor, while a network of five computers is processing the captured light and elaborating the scanned data in realtime. The software has been especially developed by the artists: it is based on computer vision algorithms and a special kind of neural network to generate both visual and audible results.  ScanAudience is a performance in which the audience becomesthe protagonist of the show, but at the same time experiencing a new sonorous and visual dimension under the artists direction.
