Here is a run through of the setup for the laser controlled music thingy! This is not how it sounds as it is just ticking over whilst I am filming and when I do play it I only have one hand free! The basic premise is this; Light dependent resistors (up to 16 of them) are stimulated by lights and lasers passing over them and the change in resistance is measured by an Arduino Mega and sent over USB to a laptop running Window 7. The data streams are processed by OSC and Max/MSP, converted and sent to a variety of sound sources.
'Ad Sensorem' is my first, simple installation.

Developed for the T, a circular glass building located in the center of Cagliari, Tlight is a permanent interactive installation obtained through the use of LED panels on the top floor of the building. light’s panels change color and intensity depending on the traffic noise, on outside temperature and on many other sensor system.
