Project Description: A podium to be used as musical instrument. I created a surface onto which users could place various found objects. The identity, position and orientation of the objects, as sensed by a video camera, changed the parameters of a physical model in the VL1 MIDI synthesizer. The notes played by the synth were determined by another musical instrument. I worked on this with Danny Rozin, Geoff Smith and Dominick at Interval Research, Expression Group
Technical Notes: I used Macromedia Director/Lingo with Danny Rozin’s Video XTRA to track the objects. I used HyperMidi to communicate with the MIDI synthesizer.
