PiPo SDK release v0.1

3 Jul , 2015  

Update: the PiPo SDK v0.2 is now available on Ircam R&D‘s GitHub!

The PiPo module API for writing your own processing and analysis objects is now available and documented here:
It includes an example xcode project to build a simple pipo mxo for Max that also works within MuBu.

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…

Gestural sonic interaction: the virtual bath tub

22 Jan , 2015   Video

Gestural sonic interaction: playing with a virtual water tub. Sound samples are controlled with hand movements, by splashing water or sweeping under the surface.

Conception: Eric O. Boyer (Ircam & LPP), Sylvain Hanneton (LPP), Frédéric Bevilacqua (Ircam)
Technology: MuBu and LeapMotion Max object, ISMM team at Ircam-STMS CNRS UPMC
Sound materials: Roland Cahen & Diemo Schwarz – Topophonie project

With the support of ANR LEGOS project.
