Tom Zé

SuperUber joined musician Tom Zé, in a unique performance at Multiplicidade Festival, at Oi Futuro. Held annually since 2005, and curated by Batman Zavareze, Multiplicidade Festival combines experimental visual art and sound in multimedia performances.

A wearable electronic gadget using wireless communication was created, so that Tom Zé can manipulate the images: it’s called “Tomzerial”. Using it, the musician can trigger graphic explosions projected above him.

In this project I set up and programmed the Arduino that was inside the Tomzerial box. There was a XBee wireless transmitter that was sending OSC messages to the performance software in backstage.
