In this video i'm using the Kinect patch Synapse to control different parameters in Ableton Live. Synapse was created by Ryan Challinor. He's documented it here: http://synapsekinect.tumblr.com/post/6307790318/synapse-for-kinect I have my torso mapped to the z-axis which is manipulating different dials within a couple Ableton effects.
This is part of our main project last semester, Kinecraft. Here is a link to the project abstract: http://syneme.ucalgary.ca/groups/studentresearch/wiki/c0129/Minecraft_Music.html
