Interactive Sound and Movement System (2020)
Tech: Max/MSP, Ableton, Kinect
Field: Sound Design, Interactive Media
empatisk: is a bachelor project that - with its interactive design - explores the cross-modal connection between sound and movement. Through computer vision, body movements are tracked and analyzed. The system does not focus on the individual movement but focuses - with inspiration from Laban Movement Analysis - on the emotional expressiveness within the movement sequences.
This is done for the system to be able to recognize emotional expressiveness and generate a suitable sound design to achieve a real-time emotional symbiosis between sound and movement.
Programming + sound and music: Casper Westhausen
