Getting new members injects energy into the organization. Fake Pilot (a.k.a. Mattias Lindberg) is one of our latest additions and he has been cramming Quartz Composer and Processing books lately and he has shared valuable tips and video experiments in our Facebook group lately. I thought I’d share some of that here on the blog.

Mattias created this audio reactive experiment after  reading “Learning Quartz Composer” by  Graham Robinson and Surya Buchwald. Mattias states that you can get a 30% discount on if you buy the electronic version and disclose some personal information.

The authors of the book launched a website recently called I Love QC that offers free Quartz Composer tutorials and project files (registration required).

After investing in a Microsoft Kinect Mattias bought the book “Making Things See” by Greg Borenstein that teaches how to use the Kinect with Processing. Apparently he wasn’t quite happy with the results because according to the caption of the video above, he switched to Brekel on Windows and imported the result into Houdini and rendered it out in After Effects. So it’s no longer live, but the result is stunning.

If you want to see Mattias’ visuals in Stockholm this weekend you will have a chance tonight (friday) at Spy Bar and at Unfokused/Hngr, Nordic Light Hotel saturday night.
