Live Kinect performance in Melbourne 24/06/11 (tomorrow night)

Since my performance at REMIX11 I’ve been working solidly (5-8 hours daily) on getting a full blown, 30 minute live set performance with the Kinect. And I’m happy to say it will be my tool of choice tomorrow night at Brown Ally, Melb.¬†for Enig’matik’s album launch party.

It’ll be an amazing night from start to finish, but make sure you head down by 10pm if you want to catch my set!


Live Looping with Ableton and Xbox Kinect

A live performance I did on June 1st @ Microsoft’s REMIX11 conference using my custom Kinect/Ableton/Max setup. I’ve moved on from just controlling a bassline, and now have it setup to a whole assortment of virtual instruments and loop them live to create entire tracks.

Music setup:
– Ableton Live
– NI Massive
– Max/MSP (making useful MIDI data out of the hand coordinates from OSCeleton)
– Behringer FCB1010 (controlling Ableton, ie. looping, switching the Kinect’s instrument etc)

Kinect setup:
OpenNI, PrimeSense’s NITE, OSCeleton

Kinect for Windows SDK beta – now out!

I’ve been looking forward to checking this out since I heard it was coming out a couple of months ago and the Microsoft SDK for the Kinect is now officially out for researches and non-profit developers.

To get your cheeky coding hands on it, go to the: Kinect for Windows SDK download site.

Have fun!


Pics of my Kinect/Music demo from REMIX11 Sydney

Had a great time at REMIX11 last week. I had a slot during keynotes and ran a booth demoing my setup the next day. Thanks to everyone who checked it out and said hi and many thanks to Michael Kordahi who got me there.

Here’s a couple of pictures from the performance.¬†Video soon.
