Combining the WiiMote and the Kinect can produce “great music” together as this Kinect program composes music through the user’s body movements and WiiMote controls. Youtube user AlistairDBClarkson released his latest Kinect hack in the form of a Telekinetic controlled music composition program. Using the Kinect, body movements help in synthesizing MIDI files and the WiiMotes probably help in either the volume or MIDI file selection. The result is a musical score that greatly corresponds with the user’s movement. An emotionally charged composer can actually convey his feelings through this Kinect program, with fierce gestures producing fierce music and gentle ones with a more serene sound. View the video to see how this Kinect and WiiMote integration works perfectly with each other.
Here is a brief description of the project:
“Midi track abused with kind permission from www.mfiles.co.uk. Short video of a telekinetic conductor, hand positions and orientation are tracked with a Kinect and 2 Wiimotes.”
