This is my final year project that I directed at Central Saint Martins: a series of interactive character holograms that respond to music. My interest in characters in music stemmed from my research
into music identities during my final year of Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, where I specialised in ‘Moving Image’.
Many music identities use characters or avatars to distinguish their brand from others. Many entirely character-based virtual pop stars, bands and musicians have risen to fame, including Daft Punk, Gorillaz, Japanese hologram vocaloid Hatsune Miku, DeadMau5, Marshmello and Studio Killers.
When asked about the future of EDM Pete Tong answers, ‘I think the evolution of the scene will be more about characters and personalities’.
I believe there is a huge potential in the area of music visualisation and augmented characters and holography which may grow exponentially as VR, AR and holographic technologies become more widely available and popular, ‘Electronic dance music shows are becoming immersive experiences through computer-aided magic’ (Mona Lalwani).
