Phantom of the Kinectar!Published by Jared St. Jean on Tue, 03/04/2012 - 11:50am
How cool is Kinectar? A rhetorical question mind you, but seriously you guys...seriously. Musician/Programmer Chris Vik has added another label to his name, that of conductor. In his latest video, Chris uses his Kinectar software to patch into the Melbourne Town Hall Organ. Since the organ received an overhaul in the 90's, it's now able to produce MIDI notes which open the appropriate pipe valve, perfect for Kinectar integration.
This is Kinect musical hacking on the grandest of scales. This original piece was co-written by Chris Vik who handled the programming and musical accompanyment along with lyrics and vocals by Elise Richards. You just have to see/listen to really appreciate this one folks.
