The creators of Exquisite Motion Corpse are porting their art installation into an iphone/ipad App, called Bodies and Beats! To help fund the project we have launched a kickstarter campaign. Check out the official Kickstarter page!
Bodies and Beats turns you into a digital mashup artist. Create your own video collages set to beats, and then change the elements with a touch of your finger to discover something new. This iOS app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is inspired by our original interactive video installation, Exquisite Motion Corpse.
How it Works:
Build your body! Pick from a video catalog of body segments – from the surreal to the hilarious – all accompanied by unique beats and sound effects from musicians like Mux Mool, Mogi Grumbles, JDSY and Brael. Mix and remix the elements to create something crazy, something funny, something weird.
You control the video speed, with half-time and double-time controls. Or randomize the video clips to discover new combinations.
Our original four-channel video installation features a life-sized tower of screens controlled with a podium-mounted touchscreen. Users swap body segments synced to a beat clock.
UPDATE 1: Our kickstarter was successfully funded!
UPDATE 2: The Bodies and Beats app is available on the app store!
