Sensory Chairs: A System for Biosignal Research and Performance
Music and sound have the power to provoke strong emotional and physical responses within us. Although concepts such as emotion can be hard to quantify in a scientific manner there has been significant research into how the ...
The integral Music controller: Introducing a Direct Emotional Interface to gestural control of sound synthesis.
(Michigan Publishing, 2005-09)
This paper describes the concept of the integral music controller (IMC), a controller that combines gestural interface with direct emotional control of a digital musical instrument. This new controller enables the performer ...
Lantern Field: Exploring Participatory Design of a Communal, Spatially Responsive Installation
Lantern Field is a communal, site-specific installation that takes shape as a spatially responsive audio-visual field. The public participates in the creation of the installation, resulting in shared ownership of the work ...
Multimodal Interaction in Music Using the Electromyogram and Relative Position Sensing
This paper describes a technique of multimodal, multichannel control of electronic musical devices using two control methodologies, the Electromyogram (EMG) and relative position sensing. Requirements for the application ...
Creating Biosignal Algorithms for Musical Applications from an Extensive Physiological Database
Previously the design of algorithms and parameter calibration for biosignal music performances has been based on testing with a small number of individuals - in fact usually the performer themselves. This paper uses the ...
Inner-Active Art: An examination of aesthetic and mapping issues in physiologically based artworks
Much art seeks to describe or stimulate the feelings and emotions of the viewer, through both abstract and literal representation. With the exponential increase in computing power over recent years we also seek new ways ...
Affective Feedback in a Virtual Reality based Intelligent Supermarket
The probabilistic nature of the inferences in a context-aware intelligent environment (CAIE) renders them vulnerable to erroneous decisions resulting in wrong services. Learning to recognize a user’s negative reactions to ...
Creating a Network of Integral Music Controllers
In this paper, we describe the networking of multiple Integral Music Controllers (IMCs) to enable an entirely new method for creating music by tapping into the composite gestures and emotions of not just one, but many ...
