Playing Kyma

30 Years Ago, in a Galaxy Far Far Away...

This is a video showing how fun it is to became a Jedi :-)
Matteo Milani (U.S.O. Project) controls Symbolic Sound Kyma with the bluetooth Nintendo WiiMote (via OSCulator application for Mac OS X, running in background).
To do this you need: a Symbolic Sound Kyma system (version X.44), the Nintendo Wii remote control (without the full console) and OSCulator 2.0 by Camille Troillard.
The Sound is generated from Kyma with Granular Synthesis for the humming, custom samples triggering for the impacts, plus noise filtering and doppler for the whoosh effects.

[This Sound is available to Kyma users here]

Best wishes on the 30th anniversary of Star Wars!
