Kinectofon

Version: 0.2
Created date: 2013-01-21
Modified date: 2013-05-27

What can it do?

The Kinectofon is an instrument for creating sound from a Kinect sensor device. It is based on turning images into motiongrams, which are again turned into sound based on an "inverse-FFT-process". See my NIME 2013 paper for details.

Usage

Connect your Kinect sensor, open the patch, start the video input, start the audio, move to make sound. The following keyboard commands can be used:

esc = toggle fullscreen mode
w   = white noise
p   = pink noise

a   = average
l   = line
    
i   = image
m   = motiongram
    
1   = Regular image
2   = Depth image
3   = Silhouette image
4   = Foreground image
5   = Motion image
6   = Depth motion image
7   = Silhouette motion image
8   = Foreground motion image
