Interactive spatial sound synthesis – Tension
Here is a nice video showing how Kinect from Microsoft really can have a play in music production:
A brief video showing Tension. An interactive spatial sound installation for multiple users. A person enters the space and a generative sound is assigned to that person. The sound pans around in the 6-channel speaker system following the user in the space.
Up to 5 users can use the installation at the same time. Each person modifies the other sounds based on the distance to the other users. The closer you are to other people the more the tension in the sound increases.
