You might imagine sound in space, or dream up gestures that traverse unexplored sonic territory. But actually building it is another matter. Kinect – following a long line of computer vision applications and spatial sensors – lets movement and gestures produce sound. The challenge of such instruments has long been that learning to play them is tough without tactile feedback. Thereminists learn their instrument through a the extremely-precise sensing of their instrument and sonic feedback.

The Professor is a man on a mission to ensure the foundations of dub are respected as it mutates with a changing musical landscape generations removed from its beginnings.
“I definitely expect dub to be represented properly, as it has been at the forefront of experimental electronic music for the past 30 years,” he proclaims. An important figure in the second wave of dub, he built the first incarnation of Ariwa studios in the late 70s and came up along with the sounds of lovers rock – one of the UK’s first iterations of black music. But he’s never been afraid to explore new genres, and while he’s worked with some of the most important artists in reggae such as U-Roy and Sly and Robbie, he’s also collaborated with the likes of Massive Attack and The Beastie Boys.
Yet he’ll still challenge the youth, and will soon release a dub album called The Roots of Dubstep to emphasize the ‘dub’ in the ’step’ and remind listeners of analog warmth.
