Gray Area: Creative Code Meetup II w/ Leap Motion, Social Print Studio and More

After an extremely successful Gray Area Creative Code Meetup launch with Olof Mathé, Wes Grubbs, and Ben McChesney please join us for round 2 on June 18th!

The folks from Leap Motion will be in the house to demo and exhibit the most recent uses of their motion controller. If you've got a project you have created with Leap Motion be sure to let us know.

We are also adding a more curated soundtrack with DJ performances by Cullen Miller and Sebastien Deux

Speaker Lineup:

Isaac Cohen | Leap Motion
Isaac Cohen is an Experience Engineer at Leap Motion. His current creative project is

Brad Rocheleau | Social Print Studio
Brad Rocheleau is a Creative Coder working at Social Print Studio, a contemporary print shop and creative agency, which runs Printstagram, DBLCM, and Instagram Visualizations.

Tim Thompson
I build musical and visual instruments with a variety of 3D controllers, including the Leap Motion device. Tim wrote an open-source app in Python which implements a musical instrument using the Leap Motion. You use one hand on a MIDI controller to control the notes of a scale, and you use the other hand with the Leap Motion to play freely within that scale. Each finger plays a different note, and all three dimensions are used – x is pitch, y is quantization, and z is velocity.

Tyler Freeman
odbol (aka Tyler Freeman) is an artist who specializes in designing interfaces that bring the body closer to the machine, thus enhancing the user’s ability to manipulate digital information efficiently and unobtrusively — some people refer to these users as cyborgs, but the phenomenon is so rampant in today’s world that the word cyborg really loses all meaning.
Tyler received his undergrad degree in Computer Science and his Master’s in Digital Art and New Media at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He currently resides in San Francisco, CA. He is an active VJ who has played for numerous bands and acts throughout the United States and Europe, and has invented several performance interfaces such as DrumPants, the VJacket, and WiiJ Video.

Valentin Burov and Natalia Ricalde
Valentin Burov and Natalia Ricalde are co-founders of Scientific Humanities, re-imagining what can be shown by mixing in the virtual with the real world.
We’re going to be demoing a side project that was initially conceived at the prior Arthack that we continued development on called OrigaMIDI –
a MIDI controller and new type of music instrument built on recognition of image targets through computer vision of a mobile device.

    I've uploaded the Python source code for the newer two-channel version of MIDI Fingers to . It's the version I demonstrated at Creative Code Meetup II. It uses the Leap Motion device as a MIDI controller, with real-time control over the notes/scales used.
