Following yesterday’s interview with Kyle McDonald on FaceOSC, his custom webcam + tracking application that can make music with your face, here’s another face-controlled music demo. This one uses Ableton Live for jamming. I should add, since I somewhat obscured the fact, that this isn’t Kinect: it works entirely with a built-in webcam, which means it’s completely free to try and you don’t have to tote any extra hardware, so long as you have a laptop with a built-in cam. More on this technology as we watch it evolve…

    Cool, but really? what could you use this for??? people want to see something special that involves skill and mastery of an instrument or piece of equipment, not pulling faces like an arse and making everything sound crap!!! lets make and perform music not faff about with nonsense!!
