Towards grabbing and throwing sounds away

May 6, 2016 - MyoMapper

Over the last year, I’ve been working on the development of an interactive audio spatialiser designed to move a vocal sound during musical performance. I tried to solve this problem by empowering the user to position the sound within an acoustic space through orienting the arm in that position (read more about it). It was just a starting point towards […]

Visit at K-Array laboratories

August 4, 2015 - MyoMapper

Everything began when I first saw the following video regarding the K-Array KW8 speakers (aka Owl). After I saw such video, I just wrote an e-mail to the K-Array team about my interest to use such technology in combination with gestural devices. They answered positively, and after a couple of weeks, I had a video […]


MyoMapper (beta version)

July 16, 2015 - MyoMapper

Just back from ICAD15, where students and researchers asked me about the system I’ve used to hack the Myo armband. When I just started to work with the Myo I’ve developed Myo2MIDI, which is a Myo connector able to convert Myo data into MIDI values. However this solution wasn’t the best one, because of rescaling and centring issues. […]
