What’s a former triple j Breakfast presenter doing building blueprints in Unreal Engine? Meet Sally Coleman, a musician, radio host, music industry professional and the creative director of a new science fiction band called Big Sand.

Big Sand uses UE and motion capture to experiment with new, innovative forms of storytelling. It’s a playful R&D project, and a cheeky foray into the music industry of the future.

In this session, Sally will unpack some of the key concepts that she’s currently exploring, and their implications. Can motion capture be used to perform a live music gig in real-time? How can the game and music industries collaborate better? And what happens when we simply set out to try something new?
