>Dan Nixon Uses a Kinect to Make a Music Video for Young Silence by Echo LakePosted: February 4, 2011
Swirls of distortion drenched in reverb, walls of sound echoing through church-like digital spaces grounded by a slow pulsing kick and the crash of cymbals and hi-hats. And that’s just the music featured in the first music video to be made using a Kinect, Young Silence by Echo Lake, directed by filmmaker Dan Nixon. Nixon hacked the Kinect and fed the video into his laptop, into custom software allowing him to manipulate the data and create an art form out of the Kinect’s camera. The song is the single off of Echo Lake’s upcoming debut, due out on Valentines Day. Echo Lake’s psychedelic music is a haunting combination of pop and noise.
