Kinect Pulse Project Aims to Combine Music and Movement

Category: 
Kinect Pulse Music Movement Project

The Pulse project was designed to engage audiences by combining musical accompaniment that directly translates motion being captured by the Kinect sensor. The entire application was developed in house and required the development of their own language (Pulse SL) in order to achieve a clean, small footprint that sends notes or controller events to music software such as Ableton Live.

Pulse Project is an attempt to experiment with music and movement and a try to eliminate the separation between dance and music. The dancer becomes an instrument and interacts directly with the musicians.
