Microsoft’s TechEd 2012

Performance in Gold Coast, Australia

The Event

In September 2012 we performed at Microsoft’s TechEd event. In our 4 minute performance we demonstrated, for the first time, our performance system, combining Kinect-controlled music instruments and interactive visuals to a live-looped performance.

Our Role

As a new collaboration, this was Ethno Tekh’s first soirée into this marriage of technology. The system was built in Unity3D to run the visuals, with the audio being produced in Ableton Live, controlled by his custom Kinect  software, “Kinectar”. A number of other custom tools were developed to allow the real-time performance of an interactive music and visual system.
