Distributed and Interactive Sound Systems
This project, which is part of the follow-up of the CoSiMa and Wave projects, concerns the development of software and theoretical tools dedicated to the implementation of distributed sound and interactive systems on a large number of devices, relying in particular on the technologies. This project aims, in particular, to consider and facilitate the creation of new musical scenarios ranging from distributed spatialization to collective interactions. In addition to the production of several pieces, concerts, and installations, this project has also opened up new perspectives for scientific research, for example, on the study of movement in situations of collective interaction (EmoDemos).
An important aspect of this project is now focused on developing a hybrid environment that can combine computers, smartphones, and/or embedded systems, enabling new possibilities for expressive and synchronized interactions. This approach is also accompanied by important work on the implementation of tools and interfaces that make it possible to extract the complexity of these systems and therefore allow artists and researchers to appropriate and manipulate them more.
