Yo dude peeps. I’m venturing into the world of fashion and gonna be slammin some beats and bass during my live performance at an upcoming event this Saturday (28/04/12) – Mister Mode Fashion Market. This is a great event to come and check out my work if you’re not into the club thing and even better if you’re the kind of person to wear clothes. I’m on at 8pm!
“Carpe Zythum”, a performance with Elise Richards (Vocals) and Chris Vik (myself controlling the organ with the Kinect) along with a pre-composed piece written by both Elise and I. It was performed in November 2011 at the Melbourne Town Hall. This is the full video of the performance. If you’d like to see a video explaining how it works see last weeks video Controlling a 4-story organ with the Kinect
I’ve created my own software Kinectar, which allows the use of the Kinect to control MIDI devices, ie. playing notes through simple gestures and motion – I hooked this up to the organ.
In this video I briefly explain and demonstrate how I used the Kinect to control the massive Melbourne Town Hall Organ. It contains a short excerpt from our performance “Carpe Zythum” November 2011.
I’ve created my own software Kinectar, which allows the use of the Kinect to control MIDI devices, ie. playing notes through simple gestures and motion. The Melbourne Town Hall Organ got a referb in the late 90s adding the ability of MIDI messages to active the notes… this happened.
The company that provided the control system to allow the organ to be played via MIDI are Solid State Organ System.
Co-composition and Kinect performance and programming by Chris Vik
