Face Control for Electric Guitar: I mapped the output of a real-time face-tracker onto the parameters of an audio effects processor. The result: an effects processor that uses face-position as its primary mode of control - the ultimate headbanger-guitar-player's interface.

This project also became an installation in the Collision 5 / Boston CyberArts Show at MIT.
