Ideogenetic Machine is an interactive application that incorporates portraits of participants into an algorithmically generated comic book. The comic is created live through custom software using portraits of participants captured with camera and a database of drawings by the artist illustrating speculative narratives based on current news and events. Participants are invited to actively respond to the emerging story through performance and collaboration.

I always been fascinated by the raw musical power that an orchestra can express, so, after creating a series of videos where I'm performing a multi-track piece with an instrument I designed, I decided to take the concept a step farther and create my own orchestra made of unusually unique instruments.
The project started by handcrafting a diverse selection of instruments, then I wrote a composition where I could fit them all in and finally performed each part. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it!
If you'd like to read a description about each instrument and its playing techniques please follow this link to my Behance gallery: http://bit.ly/ROZP4s

I originally made this video in 2006 (are scanning images from Playboy magazine 70s) and now re-edit in 2013 with some effects after 2010, the audio change alone and add more water droplets just for fun, glitching with CorruptVideo.
