Our first step is to sync Leap’s gestures with Ableton Live. One way was through Max Live input in which it allows the user to trigger individual tracks and control the volume.
The patch is then connected to another patcher through udpsend and receive over the same port which triggers which tracks and clips to be played in live. Taking the output of the velocity from the notein~, it is then transmitted to the input of the random number generator which powers the fractal noises as shown below., thus generating the particle visualization.
To combine Leap and Ableton Live, we went through a program called GECO MIDI which maps hand gestures into directional buttons which are fed through Ableton mapping keys. These keys are able to control anything and everything
