Modal Kombat

Modal Kombat, The first ever guitar-controlled video game battle, has arrived. Formed by guitarists David Hindman and Evan Drummond, this forward-thinking ensemble has developed technology that allows classical-electric guitars to control the characters in console video games. Modal Kombat lies at the intersection between music, visual arts, and digital media that results in the defining of a new genre of audio-visual performance: the public guitar-controlled video game battle. Modal Kombat delivers an interdisciplinary performance concerned with the media of modern classical performance, emerging technologies, and popular culture by having its foundation in fields as wide-ranging as composition, performance, lighting design, computer programming, and circuit design. This modern-day dueling banjos raises the bar for performers, composers, interface designers, and competitive gamers, while delivering an engaging combination of music and classic video game competition. www.modalkombat.com
