Shape your sounds using light and motion
Solar Modulator is an app which allows musicians and producers to shape their sounds using light and motion.
Solar Modulator is an app which translates changes in light intensity into MIDI messages (using the camera), allowing musicians and producers to shape sounds in real time using light and motion. It can be used to create fun new ways to interact with sound, as well as granting users a full range of musical expression without needing additional hardware.
Solar Modulator reacts to any light change, so an infinite number of interactions can be created, using gestures and/or electronics (as seen in the demonstration video above). It can be something as simple as changing a sound by moving one’s hand towards the camera (blocking light), or something as complex as glitch effects using a remote control’s infrared pulses or creating a homemade controller that selectively blocks light using neutral density filters.
