"Abaaoud has a brilliant history of avoiding capture — in fact, in an interview with ISIS’ Dabiq magazine he bragged that his “name and picture were all over the news yet I was able to stay in their homeland, plan operations against them, and leave safely when doing so became necessary.”...":

Just read the mic and make the mouse react to the signal in various ways and clicks.
can try drawing the whole screen. but I found that it was much more fun if I also use a mouse and move it around as well.
best to first code it to stay within a certain range(keeps track of its relative xy and stays within certain bounds). that way when you move the mouse it effectively moves the active area around.
Then just open up some drawing software and go for it. search the haystack of effects for needles ;)
The main idea is that you can play music, and the cursor will dance with the music. (right now just amplitude) this creates a pseudo random pattern that can often be good for graphics design (eg texturing). Its not only like embedding a part of the designers experience into the art, the artist can also "dance along with it" and even predict / plan how to move based on upcoming patterns in the music.
Could be fun in a million other ways to. any kind of input could be used, not just sound. could also just make it all programmable patterns with no sensing, but that's less fun(perhaps more functional) and can be done in pure software more easily ;)
