Stefan Weinzierl demonstrates the Hexenkessel (witch's cauldron)
the Hexenkessel is a modded 22" timpani using LLP multitouch technology for control of live-electronics & dmx-light. the realisation of the instrument involves a modified led-projector, webcam and IR-Lasers. the programming is done entirely using max/MSP/Jitter + CCV. The instrument-hack is non-destructive and costs less than 300$.The instrument is intended for the use in multimedial stage performances and innovative concepts of new music.
This video is a demonstration of the possibilities of the instrument - it is NOT the actual performance of the upcoming piece Licht & Hiebe that will be premiered on November 26th 2010 in Hamburg, Germany.
