In parallel to the SWCTN Immersion Fellowship programme, Kaleider offered four Devon based individuals Research & Development bursaries. These bursaries were for new immersive ideas or experiences that utilise Creative Technology
Each recipient received up to a £2,000 bursary, residence at Kaleider Studios for the duration of the R&D, and mentoring in idea development, producing, funding and creative technology to support the future of their ideas.
During their Kaleider Residency, Exeter’s indie disco trio Pattern Pusher developed a set of MIDI and audio controlled cube-shaped lights to add to the immersion of the band’s stage show. The cubes have to be portable and be reconfigured easily in a vast amount of performance spaces.
