This is a game project we did for a little fun at the Riderville celebration before the Grey Cup last week. Done with a Microsoft Kinect, Processing, and some creative programming. A little partnership between my workplace of Talking Dog Studios and IKS Media .

Gary Numan

To be honest I hadn't really listened to a great deal of Gary Numan besides "Cars".
Started listening to a bunch of hist stuff on Rdio. I'm sickly in love with all the synths and was happy-ish to recognize that Basement Jaxx sampled his track "M.E."

Theo Parrish interview

Saw him DJ at the Mutek festival in Montreal a few years ago. Last set of the festival and a very early flight in the morning.
