After getting some feedback about our work, we’ve decided to change a few things. First of all, we’ve decided to use the amount of color on the screen, rather than the user’s face to change the ambient music. The reason for this was due to the fact that Jit.faces works intermittently, and required the user to maintain full frontal eye contact. Instead, we decided to use cv.jit.blob.centroids.
We’ve also decided to change the individual length of the music tracks and make them distinct so they are aware that they’re affecting the installation.
The amount of green would change the saw (low pitch ambient sound) and the higher pitched cycle notes, the amount of red would change the pitch and its lateral position will play a different soundtrack. Finally, the lateral position of the blue region would change the type of drum loops that will be played.
This was the result of the following patch.
