Lok Neville Lee certainly has a few designer tricks up his sleeve (his clock, business card and Björk imitation certainly hit the spot) but the main reason for this post is his DISCO BOY project, what he calls a virtual interactive musical instrument. The definition is misleading, though – if you’re expecting something along the lines of, well, anything Maz had to offer, you’re on the wrong tracks.
This is a graphically wonderful demonstration for a DirectX-based realtime video synthesis dev environment called VVVV – something VJs and their kin love to use. You basically push qwerty keys to trigger samples and you have some background loops to keep you unbored – whereas the idea is awesome, I’d pretty much love to see this updated. (Did you notice you can unwrap the whole music field from his head?)
