For my Generative/ Infoviz project I created a tool in Max Msp that allows users to create interactive sound-scapes.
I am currently working on an elaborate heat based interactive installation in collaboration with Geoffrey P. Morgan (cs Ph.D at cmu), The Pillow Project Dance Company, and Scott Steele (Composer). Click here for more details. We have an awesome java tool that allows us to dynamically color and texture the video stream. This new tool in Max is specifically for generating sound based off the incoming video stream.
Although I built the tool for this specific purpose, it is also an awesome tool in its own right and could be used in all sorts of interactive projects.
