Performance “Pollution of Today”

I made interactive gloves and software that records the body position with the Kinect and translates that to musical information. With this system / musical instrument I play synthesizer sounds and a virtual violin, loop my voice and other sounds, and control effects.

Components: gloves with microcomputer ESP32 and capacitive touch, Kinect, Max/MSP, Ableton Live.

Words:

Here twenty five years ago
Just like my friends
Just like them
Now I’ve grown
But I’m still young and flexible
My brain is fully cooked and highly capable
And if you don’t see in time what I can achieve
What remains?
What remains of me
Is just my body and hair
Trying to wash away
The pollution of today
