Tickets and registration are available at http://cascadesiggraphmar2011.eventbrite.com
Have fun with Luz Studio and learn about how to use cutting-edge interactive technology in light and sound applications. Attendees will be able to experiment with:
- Microsoft Kinect-based body tracking to create expressive art
- Behind-the-scenes editing of the tool and how it displays on the screen
- Real-time DMX interior lighting control
- 3D digital drawing using Wacom Drawing Tablets, Nintendo Wii Remote
- LightTroupe’s Light and Sound Piano
- An Introduction to real-time shader snippet mixing and just-in-time compiling
Artists, musicians, performers, and multimedia light-bearers, discover news way to use expressive technology in your work. This will be a laid-back, open forum for people to explore the software, the new art form and the cutting-edge of technology. Come and get involved ― we will be demonstrating several developments from the past year, showing present-day applications and talking about future plans. We will play with: computer vision; skeleton tracking, digital painting; Luz Studio’s new DMX light control, collaborative artwork by laying “living ink” on the digital canvas; adjusting effects with layered, independent shaders, known as shader snippets; and using the light piano to harmonize sound and art.
About the Light Troupe
Light Troupe is a collective of artistic and technical talent projecting its visions through interactive brilliance. Software developer Ian McIntosh, Josh Fitzsimmons and designer Pat Coan reach a common ground and lay a foundation for concepts including an audio-visual vocabulary extending to 5-dimensional experiences. Together they explore the possibilities of collaborative emergence, realizing undeniable beauty in it’s creations.
LightTroupe’s mission is to empower the participants at any event by giving them direct control over the light and sound experience. Through the application of art, design and science, Light Troupe has created a variety of open source tools to encourage the philosophy that every person is an artist.
Having performed and collaborated with international musicians and artists, the Troupe continues to find an inspiring and new experiences through the combination of visual, audio, interactive and social sensations. We invite the community to join us in developing this new art form.
