The Draftmaster Use Hacked Pen-Plotter Printers to Make Live Music and 3D Art

“The Draftmasters” is a video/geek/music collaboration between Victor Adan and Jeff Snyder on the performance side and Daniel Iglesia on the visuals. The way it works is that Victor and Jeff make physical gestures, which direct the hacked pen-plotter printers. Kind of like a live version of bd594’s version of Bohemian Rhapsody.

The printers are equipped with pickups, which make the sound. Daniel then analyzes the visuals and creates 3D graphics in real time. While I am partial to their first piece (above), their second piece (below) is interesting in terms of seeing how the artists are playing with their new medium.
