With the launch of Google's Pixel 4 phone, agency Swift was tasked with generating breakthrough ideas to showcase the tech of the new phone, including one standout feature called motion sense - a technology that creates a radar bubble around the phone to capture hand movements and gestures.

To highlight this, the team pitched the idea of creating a DJ rig capable of building a song using only the wave of a hand. The agency worked with partners Deep Local to create an instrument built with eight Pixel 4 phones and millions of tiny LED lights. each device has a different sample loaded to it - bass, kicks, strings etc – and as the DJ swipes over, they can build a track in real time.

Swift and Google unveiled this Motion Sense DJ Rig at the latin Grammys, partnering with Latin X music artists Karol G and DJ Felo to create a live experimental musical performance. our behind the scenes video provides a glimpse into this new technology, the build and rehearsals with DJ Felo and Karol G leading up to the performance.
