On 25 November 2012, I ran a workshop for the Music Hackspace on creating an instrument from the webcam on the laptop. Drawing inspiration from Memo Akten’s Webcam Piano 2.0, in the class we looked at the basics of openFrameworks, video processing with Open CV, driving Ableton Live with MIDI and musical geometries like the Tonnetz.
Slides and source code from the project is available on the Webcam Instruments repo on Github.

Fabrizio from the Video Hackspace arrived with a portable projector, naturally.
