audiovisual instrument
(Dresden, 2010)
by Jacob Korn und intolight ↲

UNCANNY HEROES is an interactive room application, which masterly connects club visitors, dance music and surrounding 3D graphics. It is a highly participative mix between a music live act and gaming environment. With body movements, visitors play on the installation like on a harmonic and cooperative instrument. Visual and musical moods on the dancefloor are created in a dialog among them and the performer.

UNCANNY HEROES was developed by Jacob Korn and intolight together with the network of the Trans-Media-Akademie Hellerau using the video motion sensing software EyeCon, as well as vvvv and Ableton Live. The acoustic and and visual material came from numerous resident producers and artists. It was created and arranged within a workshop before the festival.

You can see a Videofeed of the installation during the CYNETART saturday in the Netzkino-Podcast #3. ↲
