The Willpower Theremin | An Audiovisual Instrument
Here is the first version of the instrument I am building. I am using 2 infrared sensors to detect distance. Based on how far my hands are to the sensor, the amplitude and frequency of an oscillator are controlled, generating sound. At the same time, I am controlling the location and color of a circle on a screen.
I am creating this tool for Live Performances, Interactive Installations and potentially as a product for the masses.

I am developing this instrument by myself, independently which is why I need your support. I don't have investors because I rather involve you in the process and not have others dictate the future of my inventions.
Please watch the 1st Version in action:

CreativeCodingLA is a meetup I organize to gather a community of independent thinkers who use code as a form of expression. It's what I do and I want to collaborate, learn & share with others who have a similar passion. 
Join the meetup here: 
Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/CreativeCodingLA/

Here is a video of one of the meetups, where 2 great minds explain Shaders: 




The Next Step: 
To give Workshops on Creative Coding.

I need to fund marketing campaigns to reach people and develop the business.
If I get enough subscribers, I can give these workshops for free. 
Until then, I have to charge prices that reflect the current state of the economy.
If I can do them without charging thanks to your monthly subscription, they can be available online for free to anyone with an internet connection who wants to learn how to code as a form of expression and creation.

2. Research


77% of the work focuses on Research & Development.
Willpower’s creations bring mind altering, heart opening experiences through Immersive Audiovisual Performances & Installations.
He researches how to touch people’s heart and emotions through Audio and Animation in an Immersive context, using projectors to create ‘Worlds of Wonder to Wander’ to awaken the unconscious mind’s imagination and creativity into the forefront of our consciousness to take it back into our lives and transform our environment. It makes us realize that we are the creators of our lives, thus igniting the Passion in our Heart to live a Fantastical life full of Magic.
The topic of Spirituality drives the content for the work to connect us with who we are beyond our physical body and mind.
Unity: Creating experiential events connects people together as they live something amazing together. Those who would never talk to one another start having discussions because of the context.

These experiences merge 2 different approaches:
  1. Linear Storytelling with synchronized Audio & Animation.
  2. Body movements, Sound and Human Activity effects / creates the Immersive Audiovisual journey.
What is needed?
A Large Space + Equipment to develop the research for the people to experience.
