After browsing through ofxAddons, I came across ofxFilterBank and ofxLight2D. I thought they were both really interesting at first, but didn’t think to put them together.  However, I spent some time mashing together random addons, and this one seemed to work pretty well.  It takes the location of your mouse to play a sound, but also to create light and 3d forms that create shadows from that light.  Depending on where your mouse is, different things will happen.  The sounds will be a different pitch, and there will be more or less light.  Originally, I planned to create a version where the light colors would be based on the location as well, but ran out of time to do so.  While this unfortunately wasn’t as special as I had planned, I think the two addons still work pretty well together.
