DJ Equipment Controlled By Dance Moves Produces Music [Video]
Hacked Microsoft Kinect turns gestures turned into sounds in real-time.
The V Motion Project that utilizes the capabilities of Microsoft Kinect to create a musical instrument that is controlled by body movements. The interactive installation responds to basic gestures and creates stunning visuals and electronic sounds in real-time.
The audio production software includes two Kinect units that detect the movements of the dancer. A basic outline of the dancer is projected on the front wall, which reflects the moves instantly. Using the music software Ableton Live, the dancer can produce different sounds depending on where he/she points the arms.
The experimental concept is sponsored by the energy drink V, with the help of advertising agency Colenso BBDO in New Zealand. Watch a demonstration of the V Motion Project below:
