The Nine Inch Nails Interactive Stage

I found this post Patrick posted on Creative Review Blog (6 May 2009, 11:09) I thought the idea was fabulous it brings a new dimension to VJing which can be controlled by the band and allows the band to respond to the crowd reactions on an individual level; each show is therefore very much unique creating something special which is very much respondent to that moment in time. This is one of the reasons that I admire the work Universal Everything and the installations of Canadian artist David Rokeby. I am fascinated by this interaction and this has probably the bases of my interest in Arduino and Processing.

The current issue of CR features The Annual, showcasing the best work of the past year. Nine projects have been chosen for our Best in Book section, the ultimate accolade. We are featuring each of them in a series of posts with additional content to further explain each project. In this post, see how Moment Factory created an interactive extravaganza for Nine Inch Nails’ last tour

Montreal-based Moment Factory created this ‘interactive environ ment’ for rock band Nine Inch Nails’ 2008 Lights in the Sky tour. The installation allowed the band to interact with the video and lights while performing, with the visuals reacting to their positions, movements and sound.

Moment Factory worked with the band to develop different interactive effects and styles for each song. This how it was done clip explains more:

And here’s some footage fo the show:
