We are getting there. Setting up for our Saturn3 Performance tomorrow in collaboration with Łukasz Szałankiewicz aka Zenial at Izlog Festival. The robots and the first of the three projectors are set up, just one projector for the top-down and the one for the face projection missing.
Preparing for Izlog Festival and our Saturn3 Performance on 2nd May, 10:00 pm, we are experimenting with face-tracking and real time projections onto our faces.
Yesterday night we made some first tests, using infra-red light and a filter for visible light on the camera, to track the face and its landmarks in real time, while the projection was projected back onto the face, being visible for the human eye, but not for the special camera.
It’s a first idea of how it will be when the robots take over and transform Łukasz Szałankiewicz aka Zenial into one of them during the Saturn3 performance, synthesizing sound depending on his emotions.
Preparing for Izlog festival, we just set up our working space in the gallery: Electronics are spread out, visuals projected onto the walls, the 3D-printer is printing, a lot to do, but a coffee in the sun with everybody is a fantastic break from time to time. 🙂
“Sanatorium Dźwięku launched in 2015 in Sokołowsko is a festival dedicated to contemporary experimental music and sound art. Its main objective is to present the phenomena and trends in the 20th and 21st centuries, maintaining the balance between traditions of experimental music and the new, still structureless tendencies.” from http://festiwal.sanatoriumdzwieku.pl/en/ .
[...] Lukasz Szalankiewicz and Adam Donovan counter this with their Saturn 3 showcase, merging live visuals by Katrin Hochschuh with an electronic psychoacoustic gauze generated by moving robotic tripods shifting beams of sound through an electromagnetic field.
