Digital Interactive Hacks: The V Motion Project and LightTroupe

What happens when digital worlds exit the screen and walk into real-world social spaces? Join us to see two inspiring interactivity hacks, the V Motion Project and LightTroupe, that break open our experience of digital life.

  • What: Digital interactive collaborations that merge light, motion and music.
  • When: Thursday, September 6th 2012, 8pm
  • Where: BoomBap, 640 SE Stark, Portland OR
  • Who: Hosted by Portland Games for Change and BoomBap
  • Price: Free, Donations Suggested

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.” 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.
