Julian Oliver & Pix - fijuu

Julian Oliver and Pix work at the forefront of free and open source software practice, interface design and the creative use of computer technology. fijuu is a 3D, audio/visual installation. Using a PlayStation style gamepad, the player(s) of fijuu dynamically manipulate onscreen 3D visual objects or instruments to make improvised music.

fijuu is built using the open source rendering engine OGRE and runs on a Linux operating system. In the future fijuu will be distributed as a live CD project: so players simply boot up their PC with a compatible gamepad plugged in, and play without installing anything (regardless of operating system). This effectively turns the domestic PC into a console for game based audio performances.
