Angers, France (for now)
It's an UNREAL ENGINE* instance that creates actors based on MIDI or OSC signals.
I made it because I always loved good visuals with music. I spent hours looking at the winamp visualizer and always wondered how much of it was real reaction and if it wasn't completely random stuffs.
With this the answer is simple : 100%.
Playing a note on your midi keyboard (or drums, guitar, makey makey...) creates a visual effect.
As i'm using the best videogame engine (for realtime, awesome looking effects), I figured i could make a game out of it !
INTERACTION between the artists and their public is essential. Desiging something that allows spectators to be actors of the show, in realtime, IRL or over the internet, is an idea that I believe, would better humanity.
I made it in a couple weeks IIRC.
The video linked is an update I made, destined at Mr Beardyman himself, because he's one of the most hyperhuman cybermusicgeek that I could think of. (And the millions of buttons of the beardytron could trigger some Tripppppy things). Then pandemy happened; and it's pretty much stayed like that.
I reworked the game into a easier one for non-TPS gamers, and we had our times of fun ! (not shown in the video)
