The New World Symphony in Miami partnered with Parsons MFA Design and Technology to produce a performance featuring visualizations generated from the movements of their musicians. This was accomplished through the use of a wireless accelerometer/magnetometer feeding real-time data to software created using openFrameworks.

I designed the wireless units to capture the performers’ movements while other team members developed the visuals.
