The V Motion Project is a Kinect hack that tracks a performer's motion to create live music and a visual spectacle, what Laughing Squid calls a "gestural music-video performance system.โ€ Developer Jeff Nusz from New Zealand will knowledge share about the collaboration of choreographers, musicians, cinematographers and coders who turned movement into music.


LightTroupe, a Portland-based group, creates new art forms through live, interactive digital projections. Their current project is a game-driven music world that affects environmental lighting and creates visually stunning particles in a physical environment. Utilizing a game controller, players navigate and deflect piano created particles to bring chaos into a balanced field of visual stasis.
