NOTE: This project is an early prototype and is part of the Kaleidoscope Development Showcase. MOVEMENTS is an interactive experience for virtual reality that gives you the thrill of conducting a live orchestra. Responding to simple gestures, the experience generates abstract music and visuals that match the energy, rhythm, and emotions expressed with your body. As you move, the music moves with you, the colors shift, and the shapes that dance around you take on a new form. The result is a beautiful ballet of sight and sound that can be performed by anyone and is unique each time you experience it.
