In 2005, I spent a summer working in the University of Oregon’s Cognitive Modeling and Eye Tracking Lab under the direction of Anthony Hornof, exploring music and multimedia performance driven by eye movements sensed in real time using an eye tracker and mapped to various control parameters. The resulting piece, created in collaboration with Anthony Hornof and Tim Halverson, is titled EyeMusic v1.0. The work was presented at SEAMUS 2006 and NIME 2007. More information here.
