Mogees Analyze Taps

06 Jan 2012

Bruno Zamborlin presents a unique method of gesture detection with contact microphones. Using concatenative synthesis, the sound is analyzed in real time triggering events within Max. Definitely watch the mogees video.

This Computer Music Journal abstract provides the basics of Adaptive Concatenative Sound Synthesis. Also, here's 292 pages on the topic of Data-driven Concatenative Sound Synthesis.

Personally, I'd call this less gesture recognition and more surface or texture interaction analysis.
