SPACE MAESTRO is an interactive Kinect experience that players create their own musical universe through movement in the physical space. By spatially moving both hands like a maestro conducting an orchestra, player fuses gas clouds in space into stars. Creating or touching a star triggers musical stingers that make up a unique musical soundscape as well as visual.
The experience aims to position between interactive installations in gallery space and performance art in public space. It is a single player experience that takes about 5 to 8 minutes to finish, divided into four acts. The progression of interaction, music, and visual between acts shapes the overarching emotional arc.
The goal of the experience is to bring about the sense of awe and wonder through grandiose audiovisual experience that eventually induces the state of self-reflection through the overarching narrative.
