THESE ARE SOME OF THE interactive
INSTRUMENTS WE DEVELOPed
Canvas - A camera based 1.5sqm touchscreen, can be played by up to 4 hands touching the surface. in this video, we tested it for the first time with some friends and added some tablets and phones as touch controllers, operating in the same way but each device with a different sound.
In Polyjam studios, Berlin. 2014
Ezra - A sound Demigod. each movable part of his face pulls a dedicated weight inside his head, the position of each weight is captured by a computer that changes the musical patterns you hear, each of the 2 sides of Ezra's face is manipulating a single sound pattern. No doubt, Ezra is enigmatic and mischievous.
In collaboration with PIPS:lab, Amsterdam. 2014
Gabo - also a Demigod, built for kids and adults alike, move the eyes noze and talk in the ear to create strange patterns and sounds. Presented at Lollapalooza Berlin 2015 together with the Canvas.
BalzTanz - A Collaboration between Polyjam and Kling Klang Klong. we created an interactive musical room for the 2015 Localize Potsdam festival, two players take positions in the room and dance to the sound of their own movements, controlling electronic music by capturing the positions of the dancer. check out the crazy things our buddies at www.klingklangklong.com are up to.
The Drone - The Little flyer comes alive with music. sound is produced in relation to its location, when close to the ground, it makes a deep overpowering buzzing sound, as it rises up, the sound floats away and becomes distant, feels like a curious alien craft snooping around the drone operator.
