The MUΣA Live Show, created by Nitza Melas, a professor at Kyoto Information Graduate University (KCGI) and active as the main vocalist of the international entertainment group “Cirque du Soleil,” together with KCGI students, 2019 On October 29, Kyoto Computer Gakuin Kyoto Station / Kyoto Information Graduate University Kyoto Station Front 6th floor hall was held at the large hall on the 6th floor.Nitza's brother and musician John Melas participated in the performance, accompanied by music constructed and controlled by a computer.Nizza and others are visual artists who have worked on VFX for numerous Hollywood movies, and directed by KCGI associate professor Kirill Cossick, with real-time interactive 3DCG images using the latest ICT. We performed a new song.
The highlight of the show is a collaboration between stage performance and CG images.In addition to the screen in front of the hall, a three-dimensional image space surrounding the audience, projected from three projectors, appeared on the left and right walls covered with white cloth.Students learn AI with students' body movements, and CG images of underwater, outer space, temples, etc. created by Mr. Kirill. While the butterfly CG linked to the movement of the smartphone in hand flew around the screen, a brilliant show by Nizza and others was unfolding.
This show, a cultural culture event, was organized as a culmination of the intensive lecture “The Performing Arts and IT” held at KCGI this year.It is part of music festivals, concerts, and traditional art appreciation events held by leading artists to cultivate students' intelligence and sensibility.The students touched the latest computer music equipment throughout the class and worked on show preparation and production.In addition to repeated rehearsals with guidance from Mr. Nizza, he also set up the hall.
Intensive Lecture “Performance Arts and IT” is a practical class that develops human resources who are familiar with stage production using IT under the guidance of Mr. Nizza and Mr. Cyrill.Students can learn not only the individual skills that make up the show, but also participate in the planning and production of the “MUΣA Live Show” to gain a comprehensive learning experience that applies the knowledge and skills learned in the field. I can do it.
