Research theme

Sound synthesis - gesture - perception - audio-visual interaction

In order to study the influence of gesture in sound perception, it is necessary to develop specific tools based on new representations : very low frequency analysis (0 to 30 Hz), measurement of position, speed and first of all, acceleration. These specific tools have to be proofed in different contexts, including artistic creation.

Video and experimental material

Experimental demonstration : the Meta-Instrument (a multi-controller device with specific software for sound and image synthesis)
