Coinciding with the release of his 3rd studio album, VEGA INTL. Night School, Neon Indian debuted a brand new live performance experience at the 2015 CMJ Music Marathon. Powered by Microsoft technology, the show came to life through immersive visuals created in real time, taking full advantage of the latest interactive technology. Each of the five Kinect sensors used captured a different band member, reacting to the music and movements happening live on stage.
This unique collaboration between Microsoft and Neon Indian, produced by Listen, has allowed Neon Indian to continue bringing his unique vision to life each night as he continues to tour throughout the United States, Oct/Nov 2015. Watch the creative team talk about the creative process that led to this dynamic concert experience.

"This computer that were building is designed in a way so it can hand all of the sensor information" SHUUUUT UUUUUP! Your building a high powered gaming rig with multiple GPU's. Nothing more. It's just a suped up tower. Stop acting like it's something amazingly spectacular and special to you guys. Geez, it's not the 90s anymore. High powered towers are everywhere now. That blond at the end tho. Now that's special!
lol chill out man. It's pretty cool to have these artifacts included in live performances. You could also say the same thing about Psychich Chasms' synths. It's just old keyboards with effects. They're gadgets and gizmos. Even Alan said it. And pretty much he knows it's not a "worldchanging" artifact. It's cool and that's it. Who cares if the other guys are super excited about this? Just calm down and take chill pills. That blonde though.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
