My First Solo Flight with Space Palette Kinect-Controller

My First Solo Flight with Space Palette from Mark Mosher on Vimeo.

Tim Thompson flew out from San Jose to present on his Space Palette kinect-based casual instrument this week Boulder Synthesizer Meetup (meetup.com/The-Boulder-Synthesizer-Meetup) on Nov 13th, 2012.

The big news for me is he gave me a Space Palette frame! He actually came in a before the meetup and stayed to configure my system with his custom code and all the dependent parts and taught me how to launch, calibrate and customize.

After he flew home, I tore the system down and put it all back together and got it all running on my own :^). I then swapped out the audio instruments behind the scenes with Absynth patches to make my first solo performance. I shot this video while holding the camera behind the frame as I played. All audio and visuals are interactive and in response to the Kinect tracking my multi-touch movement (X,Y, Depth) through the various windows in the frame.
