Deadmau5 has performed a live set using Microsoft's Perceptive Pixel. Last October, music producer and performer Deadmau5 teased he was working with Microsoft to bring touch software to live music. Turns out Deadmau5 recently used the system in a live setting at a Pukkelpop 2014 in Belgium.
The software is running on a 55-inch Perceptive Pixel from Microsoft. These are large, all-in-one PCs with a touchscreen. Perceptive Pixel is primarily aimed at businesses and enterprise settings, but clearly there's room for creativity alongside productivity.
Deadmau5 is using the software created by the Microsoft partnership to drive the OSC, MIDI and other devices. Beyond that, not much is known about the partnership and the product they've made.
We're hoping to learn more about the collaboration between Microsoft and Deadmau5. We'd also like to know what happened to the Surface Music Mix kit.
