Chromosonia is an installation for the facade of the Ars Electronica Center. We provide the means for anyone with a portable music player to visualize the music they are currently listening to on the Ars Electronica facade featuring three levels of mapping: perceptual, informational and social.
Built on our previous experience from the MobileJam project Opera Looper creates a collective musical experience by controlling musical loops using four iPods.
Opera Looper is a combination of two software tools: a sample based sound system written in Pure Data, and a real-time animation system created in Animata. Opera Looper made its debut at the Opera Unbound event in cooperation with Samu Gryllus, Brooklyn Museum and Extremely Hungary.
(b)AR is an augmented reality game, an interactive music installation designed to be used in pubs, parties or public places.
This project explores the possibility of using mobile phones as a tool for creating music and aims. In this project we have considered mobile phones as a tool for creating music and target developments with this aim. Our research mainly looks at the following two directions:
1. Mobile phones as remote controls
2. Mobile phones as stand-alone musical instruments
No Copy Paste generates music and visuals in real-time, utilizing live coding, which emphasises the expressive possibilities afforded by programming languages as a means for defining and manipulating computational processes. The aesthetics of the performance is determined by the programming method, in which all musical and visual materials are built from elements found on the spot.
Autoremixer is an automatic mixing software, which makes from 3-4 song a new one.
Mobile Hero is a prototype of a brand new j2me based mobile game, with witch you can play your favourite songs with your mobile phone. While you are playing, the game shows you when and which button to press (and hold down). If you do well, you can hear your favourite hit. Of course its not as easy as it seems...
Jamming with mobile phones
Music sharing website
Our goal is to create musical content that was specifically created using (interconnected) mobile phones by utilizing phone interfaces that radically expand music-making competency for a larger number of people. Mobile musicians could create increasingly more complex sound loops from samples and they could mix and manipulate the created music further .
