MaD — Mapping by Demonstration for Continuous Sonification

24 Mar , 2015   Gallery

MaD allows for simple and intuitive design of continuous sonic gestural interaction. The motion-sound mapping is automatically learned by the system when movement and sound examples are jointly recorded. In particular, our applications focus on using vocal sounds – recorded while performing action, – as primary material for interaction design. The system integrates of specific probabilistic models with hybrid sound synthesis models. Importantly, the system is independent to the type of motion/gesture sensing devices, and can directly accommodate the use different sensors such as, cameras, contact microphones, and inertial measurement units. The application concerns performing arts, gaming but also medical applications such auditory-aided rehabilitation. More…

CoSiMa @ TEI’15

10 Feb , 2015  

CoSiMa submitted a Work-in-Progress paper at the Tangible and Embedded Interfaces conference held at Stanford University in January 2015 (TEI’15). The paper Collective Sound Checks — Exploring Intertwined Sonic and Social Affordances of Mobile Web Applications describes the mobile-web scenarios we tested at the Centre Pompidou with the Studio 13/16, and explores how these new forms of musical expression strongly shift the focus of design from human-computer interactions towards the emergence of computer-mediated interactions between players based on sonic and social affordances of ubiquitous technologies.
