Candle-powered Wii-hacked Turntable Demo

 The ECC is in Warsaw, Poland on residency at CCA/CSW in Ujazdowski Castle and conducting new experiments...

I had this idea for a while after making the VidiMasher 3000 that the infrared lights that trigger it could be candles. One pair of dancers here had circular movements they were using, and I thought those might work with the candles as seen from overhead. This video shows my experiment with that, and what better circular movement to play with than a turntable... so I made one. A virtual one. Like, hold a candle, spin yourself around, and it translates into you scratching a turntable sound.

Oh btw, I'm scratching "Pertaining To The Beat" from our upcoming album "All Rights Reserved" on Seeland Records. Hear it in our MP3 section.
