The Movement Lab of New York University, in collaboration with the New York Times, installed multiple high-speed motion capture cameras in a studio of the Juilliard School at New York's Lincoln Center in order to study the movement of Alan Gilbert, world renowned Conductor and Music Director of the New York Philharmonic. Reflective markers were placed strategically on the conductor's body. Since Gilbert did not conduct the day's musical program with a baton, the crew devised a novel finger capture method to record his hands. Using advanced computer software with new visualization techniques, the team transformed this motion data, tracing the intricacies of Gilbert's gestures and the movement behind the music. The video below shows highlights of the technical process behind the resulting interactive feature that accompanies the New York Times feature The Maestro's Mojo.
