Telekinetic is the name of a concept album by Aliceffekt played live with the Leap Motion, first performed at Sabaco in Tokyo. The event was recorded and can still be watched online on UStream. There was a short article on CNET about the event as well. The album cover features an alternate door to the Library of Sand ornated of the number 210 in Needle Numbers as well as the Traumae letters BI TI TA SI PO.
Tired of carrying midi controllers with me, I got myself the small Leap Motion device and used it to perform the Telekinetic album. The device gives me different controls from the usual knobs and pads, allowing me to give 3 dimensional informations to Ableton Live and be closer to actually touching the music.
The Pure Data source files used to make the controller are available on Github. To launch the project, simply navigate to
OSX Precompiled/ and open the file
demo.pd. The project sends out MIDI data from PD that can be then used with any other midi software.
You can watch a a demo of the prototype.
Someone from twitter made a audio rip version of the live recording of the show with Rekcahdam . This alternate version has a very interesting texture and is now available for download: Ao'Sanguine Patrons (Live at Sabaco).
