ABOUT THE CONDUCTOR
"The Conductor" is an interactive object for public allowing for anyone to play music and video using only their movement and gestures. No special skills are needed to perform. Anyone can use the object. It can be installed in an open public space, on stage or virtually anywhere where there is a bit of space for movement. The video shows the object as presented on Light Move Festival - the festival of visual arts and video mapping.
TECHNICAL DETAILSThe system is based on motion tracking hardware and author's software for Kinect allowing anyone to create music and visuals on the go while performing. The system also allows for improvisation, based on the awareness of the performer's body. No part of the show is a playback - all sounds and video are interactive and generated by the movement of the performer. The software is written in Java, Max/MSP Jitter environment.
Programming and design: Dariusz Makaruk Available on tour.
