Computer Vision, Experiment, Physical, Processing


In this experiment I used frame differencing techniques to use physical motion as a parameter to create sound using a synthesizer engine within Processing. The webcam image is being analyzed and the y-coordinate of its biggest moving area (here my hand) is then used as pitch parameter for sound synthesis.

The visual glitches are just eye candy and are triggered randomly.
