Shelter Air Guitar Championship

A responsive installation that transforms festival-goers into rock gods through Air Guitar. Entering the little red house and pushing the red button begins the practice mode. A backing track is accompanied by a voice over and crowd cheers indicates the players level of success. The more they move the louder the guitar riff becomes. After practice mode, the session goes into live recording, creating a 15 second video of their performance. Videos are broadcast onto large LED screens. The winner of the contest won a signed Fender guitar.

A stereo camera was used to get a real-time depth image from inside the space. If the player got to close to the screen, guitar feedback sounds would be played. Motion vectors were used to effect the guitar solos.
