The Leap Motion Controller is a little box that can tell where your hands are. Its creators say itâs âmore accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen,â and âfor the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.â
From the description,
Leap Orchestra â project for SF Music Hack Day 2013, three approaches to sound creation and two methods of visualization come together in a music demonstration all using the leap motion device.
Seth Tsui â Music Composer and Reason Integration (controls synth parameters in reason, one mapped to each finger, to perform filter sweeps, pitch/modulation bends, and dubstep wobble live)
Tyler Freeman â OSC programmer and Supercollider Integration (controls harp synth live with virtual strings mapped to points in space)
Neal Riley â MAX/MSP integration (controls rhythm track live with palm xyz motion like a gear shift)
Vamsi Bharadwaj â Visuals (visualizer reacts to music audio to create ambient images)
Dean Hudson â Visuals (Sethâs hand and finger positions create points of light in image that is broadcast over the network to every local wi-fi user, viewable as a webpage)
Peter Sobot â videographer
