The problem, then, is making all of your input usable and not just bleepy bloopy sounds, unless you want bleepy bloopy sounds.
pressure sensors was my initial idea like maybe using an enormous dance mat but again, I was unsure of how I would implement it. Fuck yeah, webcam would work and I could test that easily at home too. I will look in to that, thanks. I'm not thinking bleepy, I was initially thinking drone as I don't want it to be overbearing especially as I plan to set it up eventually alongside a friend's visual art exhibit. So I could have movements changing levels of harmonic overtones, FM rates/depths etc.

@Nyul I have had a brief look at the arduino and it is definitely something I will spend a bit more time delving into. My electronics skills are not great but I can get by so something like this may be doable with a bit of practice.
