This was my final project. Using Max MSP/Jitter I developed an app that turns movement into music using just a webcam and the computers built in synthesizer.
Fun to use as it comes but when used in conjunction with other audio software such as Propellerheads Reason or Ableton Live the app can be used in a number of circumstances.
It can be used in live performance allowing the artist to conjure rhythms and melodies at the wave of an arm, or simply by pointing the webcam at the audience for an live interactive performance giving the crowd control of a particular rhythm or melody.
It could be integrated into future developments allowing shoppers in a mall being responsible for generating an involuntary, collaborative, unique generative composition as can be seen from my WordPress blog (link below).
