To celebrate the opening of KEXP’s New Home, we worked with KEXP and Microsoft to create an interactive installation inviting the audience to physically go inside the music of KEXP.
Using Microsoft’s Kinect technology, participants remixed songs by favorite KEXP musicians alt-J, Floating Points, Olafur Arnalds and Samaris. Both the visuals and the music responded intuitively to the audience’s movements and interactions in the ever-evolving environment.
As people moved through the installation, they continuously reshaped and customized the music, blurring the line between creator and audience.
The installation was part of our ongoing work with Microsoft for their Music x Technology program, created to explore emerging modes of artistic expression and celebrate advances in interactive technology.
