TALK & DEMO
Brian made an instrument, completely by accident.
The short description is it was originally designed as a piece of interactive art. The device in the beginning responded to movement of your hands and lit up in different patterns.
It was also programmed to use as a controller for things like games and spaceships!
It is made with latest in smart materials and is a revolutionary new sensor.
He discovered by accident after visualising the data that the device basically plays itself in a rather intriguing way. He thus built a device to transform the data from the sensors into MIDI.
Both the sensor and MIDI converter use Arduino’s
The sensor part, Prosopo
And the MIDI converter

TRESPUR & AL HODGSON
‘Fantaisies_Lunaires’ is a collaborative performance between music producer Trespur and video artist Al Hodgson. Trespur explores the natural, narrative structures within his sound and Al Hodgson who’s visuals are a manipulation of found VHS footage, processed live through analog glitch techniques in a stylistic homage to 90’s virtual stargazing.
