    Computer Orchestra is a crowdsourcing platform that allows users to create and conduct their own orchestra. They can choose to upload their own music or download samples to integrate into their formation. With a simple interface, they assign the chosen samples to each post. They can also arrange detection zones, that allow them to order the "musicians" to play, using various gestures. Once their orchestra is configured, they can direct it with the movements of their body.

    With this project I wanted to explore the notion of the third dimension, with the desire to try to get out of the usual frame of a flat screen. For this, my work mainly consisted in exploring and experimenting a different device for displaying images, trying to give animations volume in space. The resulting machine works with the rotation of two screens placed back to back, creating a three-dimensional animated sequence that can be seen at 360 degrees. Due to the persistence of vision, the shapes that appear on the screen turn into kinetic light sculptures.

    Rewind is a digital clock collection designed to revive a physical link with the reading of the time that has become pervasive and unconscious since the digital revolution. While the movements relative to the reading of time are now gone, each clock offers a unique way to rewind its mechanism. When nowadays the gesture of interaction is minimized to touch, they propose to give it a more physical dimension by playing with recharge or energy release and either to rewind the clock to display the time, or to go back in time with the nostalgia evoked by the type of interaction. Their codes, drawing on childhood memories, transform what was once seen as a task into a fun activity.

    Watch Out is an interactive video clip for iPad. The user is able to cut the screen in different parts which can be modified in real time. He will sometimes notice that the application takes control and forbids him to interact for a moment. This pattern is directly in reference to the lyrics that talk about choices and obligations in life. This work was an opportunity to get involved in a real project working with singer Lila Cruz and to gain experience in filming and creating interactive systems.

    Mecadro is a construction game available on computer and online (sylvainmeltz.com/mecadro), that allows you to create a “machine“ based on simple mathematical and geometric principles (translations, rotations, trigonometry…) to product complex drawings. The game introduces the user to programming through a graphic interface : he has to experiment, think in a certain way, observe and contemplate a more or less expected result.During my 4 years at ECAL, the hidden beauty of mathematics and geometry has been one of the most interesting discoveries : with a simple formula, a point can become a moving, independent and complex object.
    Programming took a significant part in my studies and introduced me to a certain reasoning and creative “behaviour” : to experiment, to research, to alter…
