Airdeck Wii Theremin (Part II)

Congratulations to Joel, DJ Mojo, on completing his undergrad senior project!

This video was shot shortly after his project presentation and demonstrates the AirDeck virtual theremin application he designed. The AirDeck was written in Jave with the WiiUseJ API for handling Wii remote events and the JSyn API for internal synthesis. It can control MIDI out as well as offering a simple DJ scratch interface for real-time manipulation of sound samples similar to a DJ scratching with vinyl records.

Kutiman – ThruYou – I’m New

What you’re about to see is a mix of unrelated YouTube videos/clips edited together, by Kutiman, to create ThruYou. In other words – what you see is what you hear.

I was blown away when I saw this and felt compelled to share it with you. Kutiman is to YouTube videos what DJ Shadow is to vinyl records. This is a perfect example of synergy, where the whole is indeed greater than the sum of the individual parts. Thanks to Brian from JAAAHWS for turning me onto this, it put a huge smile on my face this morning.
