Yohkoh

    Yohkoh


    To create this photon trip, I needed some effects that brings the sensation of the speed. To achieve it, I created a "spiral synthesizer" the parameters of which are controlled by a max-MSP program using a kinect. Every "star" composing Yohkoh has been generated body motion. The hands control the aphelia, the center and the speed of each spiral but also some timbre parameters. So the interactive part of the composition is inside the making of the piece. The IRCAM spat externals have been helping a lot to simulate the doppler effect that brings the sensation of speed. No need to make wars with stars...
