I’m currently providing some reactive AV for a project working with kids across two schools in Chester. Every week I set my stuff up and the kids develop a performance with dancers and musicians whilst I provide reactive projections.
This week though I was given an assistant, a little girl called Kirsty. I gave her the job of activating switches an changing colours. I simply gave her the korg nano pad with red green blue and yellow stickers on the pads, and let her change in time with the performers.
It worked well because whilst I had some fancy patches going on in Isadora and lots of great tech all cabled together, the key changes could be controlled via this very simple interface. So, with a little introduction, Kirsty was able to guide us through the show with flying colours.
