Squeal [iPad, openFrameworks]

In 2010, Hong Kong musician/producer/composer Gaybird Leung invited Henry Chu to create a music app for his show Digital Hug, he was inspired by SoundGyro and want to create an instrument that could respond to body gesture like a theremin. Squeal is aimed to launch with 100 faces and you are invited to take part. The team has gathered faces from designers, artists, athletes, musicians, office ladies, writers, directors…. If you are interested to become part of this app, send them your portrait and information and they will put into our queue. They cannot guarantee your face will be used but of your information will be kept securely and will only use for contact only.

The app is currently in development and expected to be submitted to the AppStore in July.

Henry Chu is a Hong Kong based new media artist / interactive web designer. After he finished his Electronic & Electric Engineering Degree in University of Auckland, New Zealand, he came back to his birthplace Hong Kong and started his digital design career in 1998.
