FELLOW RAVERS AND FRIENDS,
Meet Ofer Green! His future looked bright, but at the age of 14 he began losing control over his muscles, and a bit later over his voice. This is how he found out that he was suffering from a rare condition called the Majado-Joseph disease: a cure-less neurological disorder similar to ALS. Ofer makes insane dance tracks!
Today, Ofer cannot use his hands even to control a mouse or turn a knob. To communicate with the world he uses a sophisticated system that tracks his eye movement and converts it to mouse position on the computer screen. However, that system is not sensitive enough for the fine tuning of knobs and sliders, which is crucial for the creation of electronic music.
We are a group of Ofer’s friends, family and music teachers, and we want to create a set of software tools that will allow him, and other disabled musicians around the globe, to tune knobs and sliders, to play, record and create music. This can be done by combining the existing gaze-tracking technology with the MIDI protocol, which controls music software. In order to achieve this goal, we need a computer programmer to sit with Ofer and design the tools that will make it easy to control the software.
We need your help to fund a good programmer who will realize offer’s ideas and help him and countless musicians to create new music.
HERE is the link to their Indiegogo page, where you can donate money and in return help Ofer, thousands of others like him, and receive sweet prizes in return as well.
