Space F!ght is an audio and visual live experience that explores the interaction between 3D projection mapping and improvised music. Drawing upon influences from a wide range of music styles, Space F!ght blends saxophone (James Mainwaring), voice (Anna Edgington) trumpet (Matt Postle) percussion (Enrico Bertelli), guitar (Tom Adams) and electronic hardware (Radek Rudnicki) to create an unique and powerful sound, visualised through with custom made 3D projections (Jakub Hader). To emphasize effect of the visualisations, Space F!ght is using a custom made modular scenography for visualisations/3D mapping that reacts in real time to the improvised music.
