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.
If you haven't been following his work, Chris Vic is doing some really amazing stuff with his Kinectar Performance Platform. This latest video shows what can be achieved when Kinectar is used in tandem with live performance art. The end result is an immersive experience that seamlessly mixes live motion with musical accompaniment that is generated by the performers actual motion.
If you haven't heard or seen anything relating to Chris Vik's work, now's a good time to start catching up. His YouTube page should give just the right amount of background info and be warned, your mind may be blown in the process. Go here - http://www.youtube.com/user/synaecide - run, don't walk.
