Using The Human Face As An Electric Instrument [Video]
Digital artist Daito Manabe turns people into controllers for experimental music performances.
Tokyo-based artist and programmer Daito Manabe has carried out a number of innovative technology projects. These often involve him hacking the human body in some way.
One system focuses on experimental music performances and linked a person’s face to electric sensors. Instead of playing a guitar or drums, this system let you ‘play’ your face like a musical instrument, using facial movements as a controller to trigger sounds.
