So what are his 'breaths' controlling, I'm guessing MiDi pitch, perhaps velocity as well , and his left hand ?

There is a specified controller called "breath controller" in MiDi specification.
Possibly he used that one?

Take a look here.

You can purchase a breath controller and retrofit it to a wind instrument.

They did all of the heavy lifting for you, in that they calibrated the pressure sensor and provided an interface.

And here's the pressure sensor.

Definitely worth playing around with. :)
