Japanese Taiko drummer Eitetsu Hayashi and his professional ensemble Fuun-no-Kai were part of several community based residencies in Cleveland and Dublin OH.
ACCAD was invited to motion capture Eitetsu Hayashi and Fuun-no-Kai. The opportunity added to ACCAD's "Cultural Database" motion capture data collection. ACCAD also re-purposed the data into animations which were later projected and accompanied by sounds of the Taiko ensemble drumbeats. This performance was part of the Dublin Ohio Arts Festival on April 30th, 2005.
Completed in 2005.
