Voyage to the Other Side
MetadataShow full item record
Voyage to the Other Shore is an interactive musical composition that uses the Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect sensor as the interface for performance. This piece uses Delicode NI Mate to receive data from the Kinect, Max/MSP/Jitter as the environment to execute data mapping and scaling, and Symbolic Sound's Kyma system as the sound-producing, final performance environment. The Kinect transforms body movement, which look like conducting and dancing motions, into data streams that controls the sonic fabric of the composition. Musical recording from both musical and non-musical sources were made in both in United States and China to form the fundamental material of the composition. The composition is approximately nine minutes in duration and has eight sections each representing the different emotions and moods I experienced during the time of my stay here in U.S. and how two cultures impact me.
