Real-time interactive multimedia composition using a hacked xbox Kinect to draw real-time animations with the oboe bell. This composition is a performance version of my interactive new media installation by the same name which can be found at this link.
A later project from this series is Ebenezer Creek for 2 English horns, bass and interactive video.

Custom code turns motion and speed data from the IR camera into colors and shapes, drawn in real-time by movements of the Oboe bell. The image revealed underneath is a photo from the flooded Tupelo forest in Ebenezer Creek, Ga, taken from a canoe. Original music is a structured improvisation using live sampling and looping. Custom ceramic gong made by Kelly Kessler.

The first video is an excerpt, the second is the full performance from gallery F, Nashville, TN in 2011.
