An exciting detail to this Friday’s Chillography 202 will be the Entranced demo. Monstro.us is coming all the up from San Franscisco to treat us to a sneak preview of their upcoming interactive music game, featuring music from one of the heroes of the global chillout scene, Makyo. And to bring this full circle, Makyo and his record label, Dakini Records, produce a series of chillout shows in Japan called “Dakini Nights,” which was an important influence in the creation Chillography. 🙂
In their words:
Entranced, a whole new way to appreciate music.
Entranced is a 3D interactive music experience designed to immerse the player in a vibrant and responsive visual landscape, exciting the imagination and creating a sense of rhythmic flow. By listening to energetic World music, observing visual cues, and receiving feedback from the game controller, each player interprets and performs movements that sync with the music. The result is dazzling visual and audio rewards.
Here’s some video of Entranced being demoed at the 2009 Motion Graphics Festival in Austin. I can’t wait to give this a try myself.
