have got an exhibition at the kunstraum kreuzlingen with 17 large video objects three of which are using kinects. if you''re in the lake constanz region (southern germany - northern switzerland) please drop by. the opening is sept 14th and it runs till oct 21st.
unfortunately you can't download it yet, Fred accidentally used them in his patch he posted here, so it turns up in the patch but is not working if you don't have f27. So please be patient until it will be released to all. But you can do all with the syphon server and syphon client from the v002 page.
Thanks for bringing up this topic... I have been researching this area for the past year or so in preparation for a project just recently completed.
It's fascinating to think that the first music/visual device, the Ocular Harpsichord (sometimes called the [color organ)](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_organ) was created in 1725! The best single site that I found in this area of research is the [RhythmicLight.com](http://RhythmicLight.com) site created by Fred Callopy. You will find the resources and timeline spectacular.
I just premiered a four-movment work for orchestra, choir, two MIDI/Acoustic Pianos and _Chromalume_. The _Chromalume_ software was written using Isadora. The Chromalume controlled the presets for 50 moving lights and 4 projectors mapping out throughout the entire music hall using MadMapper as well as a MIDI percussion controller input to control amplitude of various camera inputs and other video filter sets. The Disclaviers projected color and images that were related to some of Scriabin's color concepts (and my pitch/color theory). Each note on the piano created a color and particle projection that responded to the dynamic intensity of each note input.
The Isadora software program was the unifying hub controlling all the media incorporated in the work. The Rochester [Symphony Orchestra and Chorale](http://http://www.rochestersymphony.org/tickets-and-events/2012-2013-concert-season) premiered the work two weeks ago. I call the multimedia package used to enhance classical music events "Symphonic Vision" and hope to use it with the standard repertoire with other willing orchestras.
Thanks Mark for creating Isadora... and thanks for hitting on this topic near to my heart.
Dear Mark, colleagues and fellow Izzy-ites, Nelisiwe Xaba and myself are travelling from South Africa to perform Uncles & Angels in Berlin on 14 and 15 June 2013. As Mark's workshops are around that time it would be great if you could come around! We will be at HAU 3, please check these links for more details:
We will also be showing a work in progress, Scars & Cigarettes... which is still gradually taking shape.
Hope to meet some of you there!

I'd like to make you discover "The Unknown Skater" : [http://franetjim.free.fr/unknownskaterperf.html](http://franetjim.free.fr/unknownskaterperf.html)
It's an AV performance I did for the first time outdoors yesterday night in Paris' Fête de la Musique (music fest), after 5 other shows (including Kasseler Dokfest in Germany, LPM in Rome and Computer Art Congress in Paris).
This time, I performed it with the latest version 126.96.36.199 which is really good (no freeze at all, only problem I had sometimes with the former version).
Thanks Mark for this very good job!
I only use 4 movie players and different effects I control with the keyboard, the mouse and a korg nanokontrol.
I am rather familiar with these PROs. There is a very talented sand painter artist Madli Luuk in Estonia as well.
However our aim and focus was to create an interactive canvas where everybody could express themselves without any artistic training. Playing with sand, creating abstract images-projection, motion triggered soundscapes and sound triggered video made it all into nice meditative environment.
Isadora was used extensively for all this.
