Abstract / Summary

Accurately measuring the audience response during a performance is a difficult task. This is particularly the
case for connected performances. In this paper, we staged a connected performance in which a remote
audience enjoyed the performance in real-time. Both objective (galvanic skin response and behaviours) and
subjective (interviews) responses from the live and remote audience members were recorded. To capture
galvanic skin response, a group of self-built sensors was used to record the electrical conductance of the skin.
The results of the measurements showed that both the live and the remote audience members had a similar
response to the connected performance even though more vivid artistic artefacts had a stronger effect on the
live audience. Some technical issues also influenced the experience of the remote audience. In conclusion we
found that the remoteness had little influence on the connected performance.
