contour shape to waveform to sound
Jun 5th, 2010, 1:24pm
i am starting research on how to
take input from a camera .
threshold it to black and white
find the longest continous line
straighten it out horisontal keeping to peaks and lows
read the resulting waveform as sound.
maybe loop the sound as a waveform for a synth.

point your webcam at a piano
take picture
go to your keyboard and press a key
listen to the imaginable sound of the seen piano

maybe it will resemble eachother or be plain noise?

any ideas of how to do this?
