Neurosonics Holographic Talking Heads

(Video Link)

I'm not really sure what is going on in this video, but it appears that two musicians on a turntable and a drum set are using speaking, holographic human heads as instruments. That's all of the information that I can immediately find. Warning: some NSFW language.

Regarding "programming" the heads to match sounds - if it was a paper ghost illusion, wouldn't it be likely that the whole performance was pre-recorded and programmed, with the live humans just going through the motions?

Not hearing the crowd doesn't mean much, this sounds like the sound was recorded directly from the console, not from microphones in the room.

I can't say I know anything at all about holograms, but if they're just videos projected onto a glass or something like that, with all the apps and programming you can do for music these days, it doesn't seem that complicated to trigger a video based on what sound is triggered. I can't see clearly on the video, but even the turntables could be digital ones, playing whatever sound the guy chooses to scratch on, with frames of the selected track linked to frames in a video.

I vote Peppers Ghost too. You would still have to have the video triggered by the turntable (probably as easy as turntable control of mp3s) and the drums (pretty simple trigger there).

Beyond the Haunted Mansion Ball room, another famous use of Peppers ghost is when The Gorillaz play a live awards show.

The most difficult bit (other than the room on stage needed to do Peppers Ghost with a huge piece of glass) is that the footage on a turntable would have to have been shot similarly, with the samples being spoken on a turntable. And probably multiple monitors, one per holographic head.
