Kinecting Music and Dance

Developer and musician Chris Vik combines his two loves with dancer Paul Walker (not from Fast and Furious fame) to create this beautiful display of flopping about like a fairy to create music.

This is a performance of a dance development @ PACT Theatre, Feb 2012. The music in this dance piece is being created live by the dancer’s movements. It is done using Microsoft’s Kinect motion tracking camera and custom software developed by Chris Vik.

Developer: Chris Vik
Dancer: Paul Walker

This is a perfect example of forward thinking.
