1. "Lights contacts"
    An interactive sound installation with body and skin from public

    "Lights Contacts" is an interactive artwork perceptible by two people or more. This sensory installation is tactile, luminous and sonorous. It proposes an original and interactive staging among spectators’ bodies. They are transformed into real sonorous human instruments. In a poetic way, we invite the spectator to question the perception of the other one.

    This artwork is composed by a small interactive shiny ball. A first person is invited to put his hand on the shiny ball. In contact with this object, his body gets sensitive and reactive to other living bodies. If the person remains alone, nothing happens, there is no reaction. He must invite another person to touch him. They must touch each other’s skin. For example, they can shake hands, caress or kiss each other. Each touch generates variable sounds. The various sonorous vibrations change with the proximity of contacts and spectators.

  4. Experiments in balloon motion and sound using an MS Kinect depth sensing camera.

    Created for the Carnegie Mellon 1st & 2nd year MFA Graduate show entitled "Fresh Baked Goods" at Bakery Square, April 2011.

    A machine stands in a room surrounded by balloons. Circulating fans blow the balloons over the machine which creates sound based on their movements.

    Mode 1: Tones

    Balloon height and x/y position control the pitch and panning of a treble and bass voice. The tones can be quantized into a certain key or a glisssando can be employed for a theremin-style effect.

    Mode 2: 99 Luftballons

    The playback speed of Nena's 99 Luftballons is controlled by balloon height. The balloons must be kept in the air for the song to play. Feed the machine.

    Built using Open Frameworks, ofxKinect, and Open CV for balloon tracking and Pure Data for sound generation/playback.

    It allows you to draw a 3-dimensional controller and use it in two different and complementary ways. You can tap it like you would with your regular MPC or any other beatmaking device, but the best and most innovative use you can make of it is definitely by surfing your fingers along routes, colliding with objects, triggering samples or effects. It’s all about movement, and bringing back this intuitive way to make music.

    It can control any MIDI-enabled device (Software, Hardware, or even selected iPad apps through Virtual MIDI), features a very intuitive in-app editing system and integrates seemlessly in any existing Studio or Live setup.

    Objects Behaviours can be set to link objects together and multiply the available commands on the surface of the iPad.

    It’s been developed by Herrmutt Lobby & Yaniv De Ridder.

    It’s based on concepts Herrmutt Lobby developed for Hardware MIDI controllers (like the Beatfader and the MIDI scratch devices).

    Released by VLEK as VLEKAPP08


    Draw your own controller
    Work with the Controller you need, not the one you were given. Simply draw it on the screen with lines, polygons, circles and faders. Size, color, orientation and 3-Dimensional location are all yours to choose.

    Use the full potential of the iPad touchscreen: You can tap on the screen, but you better add the Surfing to your production and performance skills to integrate more of that human feel in your music.

    Link any MIDI device
    Dj, VJ, Production softwares, Hardware devices, and even selected iPad apps: you can route BEATSURFING to anything that allows for MIDI.

    Objects Behaviours
    Each object of your controller can be set to control the others. It creates a system of objects that allow you to add much more to a controller than what meets the eye.

    Intuitive In-App editing
    Forget about separated editing software, lenghty changes and whatnot. You can swap between the EDIT and PLAY modes at the tap of a finger. All your objects even remain playable when they’re be re-arranged!
