Only just found out about this, and the tour starts on Wednesday.  Concept sounds pretty cool:

 

 

 

DRIFT ft. Kyoka / Grischa Lichtenberger / YTAC sets forth an intoxicating, hyper-sensory experience where art, technology and music meet - feedback ensues, chaos builds. Part club, part installation, part immersive environment, DRIFT takes shape within a specially constructed space, where motion sensors and microphones monitor the crowd and the performers within in to influence the transmitted visuals. These observations are fed into a ‘central brain system’, which in turn responds by projecting it's findings back onto people and surfaces to blur the conventional boundaries of stage and audience.  Inside this generated environment, artists Kyoka and Grischa Lichtenberger from acclaimed German electronic music record label Raster will diffuse their visions of experimental dancefloors. 

Kyoka is the Berlin-based, Japanese-born composer producer who’s chaotic musical approach and heavy-rough sound, results in a broken pop-beat with experimental yet danceable rhythms. 

Grischa Lichtenberger is the Berlin-based electronic music producer, visual and installation artist who’s emotionally resonant music tumbles between funky, highly energetic beats, aggressive tones and trembling melodies, resulting in an almost tactile honesty that reaches out to the individual listener.

Went to this in Bham last night, concept worked even if they were having issues with a dodgy projector.

Very interesting use of MS Kinect, for the nerds out there, it mapped the crowd in real time, created 2d line representations and rotated the image like an out of body experience. Was great seeing my fat arse in colourful graphics.

Great crowd and Supersonic just get it dont they?
