It is now possible to carry a visual music studio in your pocket. A studio that rivals the quality of the first classic films. Rendering in real time what used to months to prepare. Because it is possible to react to the visuals in real time, it is possible for you, as a performer, to immerse yourself in a feedback loop between playing and exploring.

This workshop aimed to create such feedback loop. Warren demonstrated how to patch a Midi piano keyboard to a visual musical instrument and controlling parameters through tablet TouchOSC and a 3D body sensor to track head movement of a live performance of the piece EnterLeave.

Participants were shown how to create their own patches and custom shaders with Pure Data, TouchOSC, and an iOS 7 app, called Pyrl, which was made available during the festival.

Intended audience included: musicians, visual artists, VJs, animators, and coders.
