Any musician is familiar with that wonderful thing called reverb – those happy echos of sound that bounce back and hit just right when an instrument is played in a confined space. Today, many of these effects are digitally added to our music to simulate different environments, but that’s not the case with this video. Drummer Julien Audigier teamed up with Audio Zero and Wikidrummers to create one drum pattern played in multiple locations and woven together with magical effect. [Read more...]

Break The Mould

During the 48th annual Brighton Digital Festival 2013, which brings some of the best artists and companies in the world together in the UK, digital creative agency Developing Dreams and artist Emilia Telese showcased this incredible 3D printing project. Housed in a gigantic curvy, willow sculpture, which represents entering a womb, a 3D scanner built by 3Dify (using an Xbox360 and Skanect) scanned participants, then printed them out as 8cm high figures on Ultimaker 3D printers. The scanner was controlled by an 80′s style joystick and rotated around each person at differing heights. The project allowed participants to take part in the 3D printing revolution and was called Break the Mould. Film Director Sarita Frit captured the essence of this awesome installation in the Vimeo documentary after the jump. [Read more...]

Authors and Film-makers in the Science Fiction genre have been predicting hologram technology for over a century. Although most applications of this wondrous idea have involved lasers, this project by Benjamin Muzzin gives a holographic illusion. For his Bachelor in Media & Interaction Design at ECAL, Muzzin created Full Turn- an installation that spins a flat screen television around a central axis at high speeds, producing three dimensional figures which can be seen from all 360 degrees around the screen. The light forms look as though they are floating in mid air and change shape before your eyes. This video gives an idea of what the installation was like, but only shows one perspective.
