Sewn to the sky was a rock and roll computer game controlled by playing the guitar, bass and drums. Juneau Projects conducted a live performance that seamlessly integrated with an interactive visual animation. The musicians played customized instruments (guitar, bass and drums) that interfaced with the animated images of the game created with programmer Ben Neal. The performance concluded with the opportunity for the audience to play the instruments and try out the customized gaming gear.
The research and development of this project was supported by Vivid, Birmingham and was commissioned by Media Art Bath. Guitars designed with assistance from Userlab, Birmingham.
Juneau Projects was formed in 2001 by Philip Duckworth and Ben Sadler. The majority of their work includes participatory elements and involves projection, sound, music, animation and installation. They are particularly interested in the rapidly increasing speed of technological development, and its associated obsolescence.
