We decided to make a physical musical instrument with the Kinect as the gestural controller. The installation uses three programming languages. The gestures are read by the Kinect; processed in Open FrameWorks; mapped in Max/MSP, then all that sexy data gets sent to the Arduino to control solenoids that turn objects into musical instruments – lot’s of fun! I will update with news as we go along.
