INSTALLATIONS and VISUALS
"Bodypad" is an interactive ambient music installation made using Max/MSP/Jitter using Kinect. It works by triggering clips based on someone's location, with their duration in one spot also controlling a filter on its respective clip and their proximity to the Kinect controlling the volume on its respective clip. The video to the right is from a showcase of Bodypad at the 2019 Hot Air Music Festival (without visuals due to the windows!).
Qianqian Jin performed on the Guzheng to a track produced by Zong Chiang. The visuals were done by me, using infrared tracking on Qianqian's hand via Max/MSP and Kinect, with the information being fed into Touchdesigner, creating the effect of plucking floating virtual strings synced to her performance.
This installation took place in a Michigan forest; I wrapped a bunch of chiffon around a tree and projected a simple patch made in Touchdesigner onto the fabric.
