This is a video from an interactive installation made by Emily Gobeille and Theodore Watson. The software is made with openFrameworks. Participants can interact with the sonic ecosystem by speaking into a microphone. It’s very beautiful. More pictures here and here

In this video, you’ll see Olivier Messiaens composition Oraison (1937) performed by Richard Leinhart. He’s playing the Haken Continuum Fingerboard (expensive controller) controlling the Buchla 200e (even more expencive synthesizer).  It’s very beautiful:
