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.
