New version of Digital Orchestra mapping tools

May 20th, 2009

I’ve released an updated version of the Digital Orchestra mapping tools, which fixes a bug when trying to save. Download it here:

dn.node

May 18th, 2009

Sorry for introducing yet another tool for accessing the DataNetwork, but… it’s easy - trust me :)

This afternoon Brett and I made a Max abstraction called dn.node, which is now included as part of Harry’s DataNetwork tools. This one might be particularly useful for those of you who are fairly new to Max/MSP; basically you just insert the object in your patch with the node number (or numbers) as arguments, and the data starts flowing. There is no second step.

Check out the included help patch to see more. Unfortunately I won’t be around tomorrow since I have to spend the day teaching children about digital musical instruments for CIRMMT, but Brett can help you if you have any questions.

New Digital Musical Instruments: Control and Interaction Beyond the Keyboard

May 17th, 2009

New Digital Musical Instruments:Control and Interaction Beyond the Keyboard

This book was mentioned on the first day of the workshop:

Eduardo Reck Miranda (University of Plymouth) and Marcelo M. Wanderley (McGill University)

This textbook is an attempt at documenting developments related to novel gestural controllers and digital musical instruments with a view to informing researchers and musicians interested in designing new musical interfaces with control and interaction beyond the keyboard paradigm.

Our approach is to provide an overview of various developments on the design of novel gestural controllers, with various references to the literature on the subject. By following this approach, we hope to provide readers with a context to help them understand and compare the advantages and drawbacks of these interfaces, as well as tips to their design.

I am a PhD researcher working in the Input Devices and Music Interaction Laboratory (IDMIL) at McGill University. My research focuses on the design, construction, performance and evaluation of new digital musical instruments. More specifically, my current work involves exploration of issues and approaches to mapping between gesture and sound, and the design of tools to aid this process. Some of these issues include:

  • performer/interact-or expertise in music performance, installations, and games
  • the sources of musical expression
  • the effect of instrumental, gestural, and sonic contexts on our musical experiences
  • performance-practice with new musical instruments
  • divisions between performer and audience
  • conscious vs. non-conscious gestural control of sound parameters
  • similarity/differences between mapping for music performance and dance
  • gesture control of sound spatialization
  • instrument aesthetics
  • multi-modal feedback (sound, vision, vibrotaction, etc)
  • centralized vs. distributed mapping and control topologies

I am also the administrator of SensorWiki.org, an online wiki-based resource for anyone interested in using sensors in musical applications.

SensorWiki.org

May 11th, 2009

www.sensorwiki.org

The aim of this project is to provide a thorough review of the main types of sensing technologies used in musical applications. As new sensing technologies become available, this open space will provide an up-to-date resource for researchers in the field, complementing information available in books and textbooks such as Trends in Gestural Control of Music (Wanderley and Battier, eds. 2000) and Digital Musical Instruments: Control and Interaction Beyond the Keyboard (Miranda and Wanderley, 2006).

More than 30 techniques are described, along with their sensing principles and examples of actual devices that implement those principles. For each sensing technique, one or more devices are described with information on how to obtain them (links to distributors, prices), as well as photos of the device and necessary setup/conditioning circuits, circuit diagrams, one or more videos showing the devices used in practice, and finally, simulation circuits compatible with the software CircuitMaker.
