Assignment 2: “Lights Within Live” by Jake Berntsen (2013)

Assignment,Submission — Tags: , — Jake Berntsen @ 9:50 pm

My instrument controls various audio effects in Ableton with a light sensor.  The electrical components are very simple; just a light sensor going into a Teensy 2.  Within Max, I have a patch that converts the information from the light sensor to information that Ableton can recognize.  Then within Ableton, I can route the information from the light sensor to any effect I want to.  In the video above, I designed a basic oscillating patch and made the light sensor control the rate, resonance, and frequency of a low pass filter.  The sound can then be controlled by allowing less or more light to enter the sensor.  Ideally, future drafts of the project will have a larger variety of sensors and a plethora of associated audio effects.
