Held a Kinect workshop with John Park for Digital Art students at the University of Oregon. We outlined the features of the Kinect as well as proffered some of its artistic possibilities. I recorded a participant playing with one of my example sketches. Using simple-openni (Processing library) and Max/MSP, I am taking the distance measured between hand joints to control the filter of a noise generator and a simple oscillator, as well as the playback rate of audio samples. The red box is triggered by the left hand (closer than 4000 mm), selecting a new random audio file as well as cycling through a new oscillation pitch (Do, Sol, and Do an octave up). It was really fun to see other people 'play' with my example files.
