Have you ever thought to listen to the Internet ? That is what the performance attempts to achieve by analyzing network data traffic. Spectators are going to feel Internet rumbles through visualisations and sounds.
This talk presents an easy way to transform every day objects into controllers. A home-made device has been developed with Arduino and is based on the capacitance measurement system “Touché”, developed by the Disney research lab. The device applies a signal to an object that sweeps over 160 different frequencies, and measures the electrical response. The measured data are sent to a sonification system based on a mapping grid that links these data to sound parameters in order to control Kyma.
This research was conducted at the LARAS laboratory (laras.be).
