Footage from danceroom spectroscopy development workshops at Bristol’s Arnolfini on 18 Mar 2012.
i managed to accidentally get myself tangled up in this
what can i say, they had beer…and chicken
So, the London stint of the MADE residencies is over. There were a fair few technical challenges to overcome in this short time, most notably streaming Kinect meshes between 4 machines simultaneously and in real time.
I was not 100% happy with the result but i know that i had sacrificed frame rate for stability for the process demo on the last day. I think i could have pushed it quite a lot further and given a little more time could have got them streaming at maybe half frame rate (12fps). other than that the applicaqtion worked well, i still have a fair number of visual bugs to sort out but as we were only paying lip service to the aesthetics of the the work i only care about those for my own personal pride.
Here is some video of all 4 portals setup side by side

Thanks to the people of the National Theatre for hosting us, you were all very pleasant company and a special thanks to our dancers Sasha, Nick and Amina we could have done none of this without your patient participation.
I will be exhibiting Danceroom Spectroscopy at the Arnolfini next Sunday along with David Glowacki and Lee J. Malcolm. It is a interactive digital instillation that merges particle physics, dynamic audio generation and 3D imaging.
