Multi-Touch Interactive Sound Installation Controller Design
*update - check my latest post at the bottom for set-up details
I’m currently designing a MT interface for use in an interactive sound installation.
The project plans to incorporate sonic art, multi-touch technology and interactivity principles and elements.
Aims of the Project
This project hopes to enable visitors to enter the installation and via the multi-touch interface, control various ‘Sound Objects’ - 3D objects that produce fluctuating sound output dependent upon manipulatable factors such as Object Size, Speed and Location within the interface.
I’ll be using tbeta or touchlib to send OSC data to Max MSP Jitter which will produce the audio and 3D object elements.
From my current research I’m assuming that Max MSP will be able to incorporate multi-touch methods?
Also i’ll be running the programs off a Mac Book Pro.
I’m currently making a prototype using a simple form of DI (that used in MTmini) but hope to progress to FTIR with backscreen projection.
For more information such as plans and designs and to follow my progress, please visit my site and look under FYP
Just wanted to hear your thoughts on how the project currently stands.
I like the idea but there’s definitely room for improvement and with this being my first real MT build I’d appreciate the help.
