Fiets Beats

This video is more of a proof of concept rather than a motion video, or an interactive video. The idea was to hook up a contact microphone to a bike (fiets = bike in Dutch) and have the vibrations it picked up to trigger different sounds – then we could compose a song or a beat based entirely by banging on/playing on the bicycle. We got the mic and set up our sound banks, however we had some technical issues regarding getting the trigger input to work.

Having everything already set up, we decided to just run with it without any sound triggering, and we left the task of the sound/music up to David to compose.

What you see is how we would present the video, but with the sound added in post instead of live.
