Xavi's Lab 'Pan Me'

About this video

Xavi's Lab, Glassworks' technologist division, are very excited to share their latest creation Pan Me. It made its debut at this year’s Sónar Festival, Barcelona’s pioneering celebration of music & creativity.

Pan Me is a little wonder. The team at Xavi’s Lab describe it as a “collaborative musical creative space”; it combines interaction between both users & technology but also between users themselves.


In a nutshell, it enables 2 to 4 people to interact both with each other & an Ableton session, using their facial expressions to create music. The installation is centred on a hologram that users learn agile & intuition commands from, using the holographic surfaces.

iPads use a facial expression algorithm to communicate with the stereoscopic display & leap motion sensor. As you interact, it photographs your facial expressions, using the leap motion sensor to visual these on a slideshow.

It is a mesmerising new platform for people to enjoy creating music & interacting with technology. Most of all it has a real streak of fun & it went down a storm with Sónar festival goers, with over 20,000 photos being taken over the weekend.

Xavi's Lab collaborated with HK Audio, Relabtive, La Agencia Sensorial & Pol Turrents on Pan Me.
