Create a touch sensitive painting. via instructables

This musical painting is a graphical score that you touch to play melodies and harmonies. It incorporates visual composition, musical composition, and gestural interaction to create a new form of visual music where the composition and the instrument are combined together.

This Instructable will show you how to make a touch-sensitive musical painting with a Teensy to send MIDI to a Mac Mini that synthesizes sounds with Ableton Live. The painting itself is made with acrylic paint, conductive paint, colored pencil, and nails on a wood panel.

To get an overview of how to do capacitive touch sensing in general, check out this Instructable.

This technique can be easily applied to other materials and touch sensing applications!

This painting was a collaboration between Sophia Brueckner and Eric Rosenbaum.
