Introducing award-winning online video – Musician Mind-Reading produced by Twomanycreatives.

First, we invited the Ligeti Quartet to a special recording session. Each musician was fitted with a mindwave headset. Then, we converted their brainwaves into CVS data, that we used to visualise their thought patterns as they played.

The Brief

The Ligeti Quartet is probably the less classic classical quartet ever. The music they play (from György Ligeti) is quintessentially experimental and extremely complicated to perform.

The Idea

We made a music clip where we showed exactly how their music feels. By using simple off-the-shelf brainwave monitors, we’ve been able to read the brainwaves of the quartet as they play the track. We used those data and treated them as a beautiful visualisation of the performance.

Game Of Thrones Innovative Campaign wins 2016 Vega Digital Awards

The Brief About the Innovative Campaign

CIVIC challenged Red Paper Heart to create an art installation inspired by the HBO series, Game of Thrones. They were asked to convey Arya Stark’s journey in becoming an assassin, starting with her wooden training sword from Season 1 of the series.

Arya’s character and image changed dramatically over the last 5 seasons. Early on, they became interested in the idea of fans changing their own image by their sword training.

In the experience, fans get their profile photographed in a special photo studio, then step on stage to wield a replica of Arya’s training sword. Facing a 10×10 foot projection, fans swing the sword to try and hit targets. Once hit, the targets spill artwork onto the canvas including blades, dragon claws, raven feathers and direwolf fur. As the artwork grows and becomes dense, fans reveal a portrait of themselves which is a formation from the elements of the show.

With a unique generative art system, it translates the physics of sword play into an artful self portrait. To accomplish this, thy embedded wooden swords with wireless gyroscope and accelerometer sensors that measure the trajectory and velocity of each swing. As the user slices the on-screen targets, projected artwork spills out based on the swing. Each piece of art rotates, scales and moves in the particular way the user swings their sword. The custom graphics engine, written in the C++ framework Cinder, blends both 2d and 3d visual elements- an inspiration by Game of Thrones. The user’s own photo masks this 3D world, building up an artwork that fills in their own portrait. Finally, they upload the final artwork to a server and it is available for sharing the moment a user steps off stage.

Children of Labor is a stop-motion PSA geared towards the children of labor across the globe. In our execution, we experimented with stop-motion animation and cel animation.
