Sound Design Rendezvous
Closing day for the European project SkAT-VG
A sketch, a draft, is the starting point of any graphical conception in design or in architecture. The European project SkAT-VG aims to produce tools and methods for sound conception, letting sound designers use their voice and gestures to sketch out their initial ideas for the sound of an object or place. At the end of three years of collaborations among three research institutes, IUAV in Venice, KTH in Stockholm, IRCAM in Paris, and the company Genesis in Aix-en-Provence, the scientific results of the project concerning the production and perception of vocal and gesture imitations as well as the automatic recognition and analysis of these imitations will be presented on the closing day. Demonstrations of the tools and methods for sound sketches developed during the project will be featured in addition to scientific presentations.
Organization: Olivier Houix, Nicolas Misdariis, Patrick Susini (Perception and Sound Design Team, IRCAM-STMS).
