Gestural instruments [2013]

Gestural Instruments attempted to develop novel musical instruments with the Leap Motion, a device providing precise hand tracking.

I wrote several synths with SuperCollider, controlling their parameters with the Leap. Code here. Some highlights:

Maceda Box was an installation for interacting with the field recordings of Filipino ethnomusicologist, Jose Maceda, created during a residency with The UnifiedField in Davao City, Philippines. A collection of acoustic fragments spanning the whole of the Philippines and drawing from its varied musical traditions were spatially organized according to acoustic similarity, allowing a user to draw upon the works in an intuitive and playful way with the use of the Leap Motion.
