We presented the first version of COMO – Collective Movement, at the International Conference on Movement and Computing, Goldsmiths University of London, 2017.
COMO is a collection of prototype Web Apps for movement-based sound interaction, targeting collective interaction using mobile phones.
COMO is based on a software ecosystem developed by IRCAM, using XMM (see in particular xmm-soundworks-template, Collective Soundworks, waves.js. intergrating the RAPID-MIX API.
COLOOP, presented at A Futur en Seine, June 8-10, Grande Halle de la Villette
COLOOP is a connected sequencer, with integrated speakers. The users can use their smartphones to create collectively musical “loops”.
By NoDesign.net and IRCAM (ISMM team), as part of the CoSiMa project
Le son au bout des doigts is an installation shown 1.6.–18.6. at the Centre Pompidou and part of Ircam’s Manifeste festival using ISMM’s gesture recognition and interactive sound synthesis technology.
It offers a playful, interactive, sonorous and visual journey for children ages two and up. Through manipulations and listening, the children’s sight and hearing is solicited. In Topo-phonie Café imagined by B. MacFarlane, the children are guided by a game of organic structures. They set special tables that create sonorous suprises.
With DIRTI developed by User Studio/Matthieu Savary, when children sink their hands in different materials that fill interactive tubs they set off sounds and images. More…

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.
