PlayGround is developed by Herrmutt Lobby (co-founders of the Beatsurfing app) - a collective of belgian musicians, handymen & developers. They are researching and developing software and hardware since 2006 based on the systemic approach of live performance.
Le U - Interactive Ramp
In association with Herrmutt Lobby, 20syl has developed a unique device through which he explores the relation between the “sport” movement and the repetitive movement of electronic music.
The installation works on the basis of an iOS application developed by the group of artists Herrmutt Lobby. “Playground” presents a new way of considering the performance of electronic music. It is a multitouch interface which is playful, evolutive and organic. By transposing the touch surface of the screen on the ramp, the movement is enhanced. The visual interface is “mapped” on the volume of the two curves thanks to video projectors and the movements are sensed by 3D Kinect cameras.
