Video of the Gestural Music Sequencer

Here's video of me testing my Gestural Music Sequencer. Perhaps we can use it at an outing or on the Mississippi trip. As you can see the video has been mirrored so it's easier to follow your own movements. The X axis of the brightest pixel in each frame is used to determine the pitch, while the Y axis is the dynamics. The application outputs MIDI data that I'm routing to Reason. I've programmed the up and down arrows on the keyboard to increase or decrease a multiplier that, along with the 15 fps frame rate, determines the time between each note on event. I've also enabled a group of keys to adjust the transposition.


okay, seriously you read my mind. i've been thinking about gestural sequencers lately... can you bring it to class? and demonstrate?
