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.
Desta Matla and I have set up and hosted our installation “TardiSpaces” from the 16th of December until the 18th on Orbit Light Festival 2016.
Experience the aesthetic world of micro-animals in real time At first sight, nothing interesting seems to be going on inside tiny spaces such as water drops and moss. In TardiSpaces you can visually and sonically experience the aesthetic world of such tiny spaces in real time. We hacked a simple webcam to function as a microscope, so the viewer can emerge in live images of the tiny space. Different kinds of micro-organisms will be swimming by, such as amoebas and tardigrades. Little do these moving creatures know that they are live music performers…
Soular is a neurofeedback lamp that allows you to get a deeper insight of your attention levels, as they are visualised with light and sound. The concept of this lamp is based on biofeedback: the gaining of information and awareness of unconscious physiological changes in order to learn to influence them at will.
