A New Way to Make Music with Natural 3D Motion

Presenter

Making new instruments has always been part of music's progress through society, and technology has afforded tremendous innovation. Adam Somers has taken a leap into the future of music by creating powerful new instruments for the Leap Motion Controller, a 3-D motion control device that senses both hands and all fingers at up to 1/100th millimeter. In this hands-off live demo, Adam will discuss the making of Air Harp and Air Beats, and how his Leap Motion instruments can open new possibilities for musicians and makers of all levels.
