The Intelligentsia BODY-DRUM was designed by Mirai (Concept), Mio Shibuya a.k.a. Massaging Capsule (Body Armour) & Ion Machin (Electronics).
This was created for the INTERACTIVE LIVE SHOW tour in Japan with Susumu Hirasawa (P-Model / Paprika).
It is essentially a drum trigger for chest, arm and leg, used mainly for Timpani and orchestral percussion, but has been used for FX & Voice.
The Body-Drum was primarily the featured instrument for our top selling song INTERSTELLA which was the central piece featured during the Japan tour.
This Motion Capture Exo-Skeleton was used during our performances in 2006 - 2007.
Each arm of the device has six sensors that detect shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand movements, and send MIDI information to your synthesizers based on it.
One of our performances including a show case at INNOVATION LAB, in Arhus, Denmark which proved to be quite a hit in the press (see below), cited as "The Future of Music"
The AUUG Motion Synth (as previewed on an Apple iPhone advert in 2014) is a smartphone synthesizer controller app, and an actual physical phone grip which secures the device to the user's hand for musical accuracy.
We were one of the many funders of their Kickstarter project and were the first to perform this app (for OPERA Vocals) in the UK at the LSO (London Symphonic Orchestra) during MusicTechFest 2014.
This was filmed for BBC CLICK and you can see us on the show below:
