Sorry, I suspect I didn't choose the best video originally then - I though it was shorter, and demonstrated the hand movements more clearly than the others, but with hindsight you probably did need the extra practical info to make sense of those moves.

The results are stunning though - here's yet another impressive live performance from Chagall and her wonderful voice, which will of course now make a lot more sense to Folderol ;)

And here's the original feature I stumbled across yesterday in 'The Verge', containing even more info, even down to her learning of C++ to implement the body motion sensor array.

ELECTRONIC MUSIC HAS A PERFORMANCE PROBLEM, AND THIS ARTIST IS TRYING TO SOLVE IT

"While the gloves allowed van den Berg to control audio and video with her hands, she wanted to do more: how could she use her whole body instead of just her hands? The iteration she’s now working on combines the gloves with a motion-capture suit, the kind of thing generally used to record people’s movements for video games or films. For now, she has one song programmed to use all the tech she’s wearing, but the goal is to eventually expand to a full, hour-long show. That’s not an easy task. Along the way, she’s had to learn C++, find a company to lend her sensors (she doesn’t own the system, estimating the total cost at around $12,000), and continuously experiment with new combinations of existing technologies across platforms to tie it all together."

Just stumbled across this, and can't think an any better place to mention it.
SunVox
What particularly caught my attention is that it seems the most completely cross-platform synth I've ever come across :bouncy:

Scroll down and take a look at the second vid "Phase Scope demo" It really is quite beautiful... Music's not bat either :tongue:

Ooh, that is a good find Folderol! :thumbup:

Here's a screenshot of that video you recommended, which does indeed sound good.
