Happy St. Patrick’s Day. [video]
I’m off to bed and I wouldn’t mind if I never wake up, because if this is the last thing I see before I die, that ain’t so bad.
The New York Times, in collaboration with the New York University Movement Lab, explains music conducting in this beautifully produced video. It’s part interview with Alan Gilbert, music director of the New York Philharmonic, and part rendering of motion capture data, which represents Gilbert’s conducting.
To capture the data, the Movement Lab installed high-speed motion capture cameras, and Gilbert put on one of those funny-looking suits with the sensor balls on them. He conducted, and they recorded his body and his hands.
Hugz! It’s a baby two-toed sloth!
Three toed! Not two!
