Media Lab demo

- - -
So I was on the 2nd floor of the Media Lab for an actual purpose for the very first time... the deForest-something-or-other Auditorium.

Saw a demo on a "3D instrument" where the interface is a black universe dotted with stars, and the controller (instrumentalist) operates a joystick that simultaneously navigates through the stars while making sounds... volume and pitch with respect to the giant rods and spheres that are reminiscent of space stations and planets and solar systems that could be created and destroyed at a whim... hence N. asked "Do you feel like a god?" and the demo-er said "Oh yes."

We saw/heard a new composition, which felt like the space ship zapping through wormholes and asteroid belts... pretty awesome!
