eMotion Tech Talk at SEAMUS 2015, Virginia Tech

It was sunny, energetic and FREEZING at the 30th annual SEAMUS 2015 National conference at Virginia Tech March 26-28. CEO and Inventor of eMotion Tech, Chet Udell, presented a fantastic Tech Talk on the eMersion™ Gesture Control System. Founded in 1984, SEAMUS stands for the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States and is a premiere venue for electronic music composers and performers nation-wide. After a brief demo, he discussed a variety of applications the system has been used for. In addition to giving performers new ways to control electronic music and digital media using their instruments, bodies, and environment. eMersion™ has also been employed in secondary-school STEM+Arts programs as a quick and easy way to introduce teachers and students to the world of sensor control and interactivity with our digital world.
In addition to the Tech Talk, Nathan Asman performed live music using MaxMSP and Albeton Live controlled by a magical hat that could sense movement using eMersion™ for a crowd of over a thousand enthusiastic middle school students. Dr. Udell also diffused some electronic music along-side hundreds of other conference participants in one of Virginia Tech's most interesting facilities; a new virtual reality space with 140-something loudspeakers, appropriately called "the Cube."
