Experimental: Nagual Dance – Soundscape Firedance with Kinect

July 25, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The music in this video was created through the movement of the dancers in front of a Kinect camera.This new interactive music experience is called Nagual Dance and will soon be available to public.

It works like that:
The Kinect tracks your movements and sends it in form of data to a computer. The software Nagual Dance translates this data into music. And this whole process happens in real time!
It works with one or two players.

Specific sound elements (instruments) are assigned to certain limbs of your body. What you play with it is totally up to you.
The music is created in Soundscapes (interactive music pieces), a new music format developed by Nagual Sounds. These Soundscapes exist in a variety of styles and offer you many options to create and vary musical elements.

This Soundscape is called Firedance.

The left player plays the drum elements.
He’s got Percussions on his feet, Kick + Snare on his right hand and Hi-Hat + Shaker on his right hand.

The right player plays the melodies.
She’s got chords on her right foot+percussive synths on her left foot, the bass on her right hand and a Pad + Leadon her left hand.
You can stream and download the track on our Soundcloud page:
