"Painting with light as a process was born together with photography. More precisely - photography was originally images drawn by sunlight! The very name of the first imprinted images attests to this - they were called "heliography" that is literally "painted the sun." The author of these heliographs was Joseph Nicéphore Niépce (France), and the first heliograph in the world was made on a plate of lead with pewter fusion in 1826."
I learned how to basic weld in 10 minutes with Madagascar Institute during a residency together in Germany where they were making interactive musical instruments integrated into large scale sculptures for Resonant Wave festival in Berlin. They have very affordable classes here in Brooklyn with membership benefits.
Another brother Taylor Kauffner aka ZEMI aka The Gamelatron orchestra created a dynamic project of a 170+ piece orchestra of custom made Gamelan instruments played by little robots with magnetic mallets. A MUST see and hear in person. Online experience does no justice to the dynamic audible experience in person.
The Opportunity: Forging a path into the future of Music
The time has arrived! We are making the first Mi.Mu gloves available to people who want to work with us to shift the paradigm of how music is made and performed. This Kickstarter campaign has been designed to take us from where we are now, having created a self-funded, elaborate, and wildly successful gestural music system with and for Imogen Heap, to finalizing a design that can be open-sourced, allowing everyone access to the power of glove."
