KEXP: Live Room

To christen the new home of KEXP in Seattle, we worked with Microsoft Kinect to update the station’s live performance space for the 21st century.

We used Microsoft’s Kinect technology to install a network of more than 2,000 LED lights that respond to performers’ movements — and which can then be controlled by a Microsoft Surface.

The hope is to create an intelligent, interactive lighting design that becomes as iconic and beloved as the station’s old space.

The KEXP Live Room is an intimate performance space that still feels collaborative and cutting edge, serving as an engaging backdrop to the station’s many live tapings.
