This was Probably the Weirdest and Coolest Band at CES
CES, one of the world’s largest consumer electronics shows, is wrapping up for another year. Among the many thousands of items and new technologies on display was a group called Algorithm and Blues, “the world’s first data-only band.”
Using the very latest in MIDI technology–in this case, something from Intel called RealSense–the band played a gig without any musical instruments. Instead, they used sensing technology that triggered MIDI controllers and notes. The guys look like they’re playing air keys/drums/guitars, but their motions are actually triggering the music.
This is cool and freaky at the same time. Learn more here.
