The New York Electronic Art Festival presents an evening performance of new works based on the Native Instruments KOMPLETE software. Over the course of the festival, artists have been working with our sponsor Native Instruments on the research and development of various works made with KOMPLETE.

Andy Sigler will present a musical interface/installation that will be manipulated through turning pages of a book, with the sound sources being from a connected binaural recording head that both records live audio for granular playback, and uses binaural localization to rotate and face the sound’s source.

Christian Terjesan has developed a interface modelled after the Star Wars light saber using the Wii remote from Nintendo.  Manipulating the device like a light saber will generate the sound effects heard in the classic movies.

Paulus van Horne will perform his own original, six-channel piece using Reaktor.  The sounds will be mixed live across six speakers spaced around the room, creating the illusion of three-dimensional movement withing the piece.

Garret Frierson created a installation using Reaktor and the Kinect camera from Microsoft, where body movements will be tracked used to generate meditative soundscapes, inspired by the art and movements of Tai Chi.

Kevin Galler will perform an original composition using custom built synthesizers within Reaktor.
