The Odu concept and the LUM

June 7, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Nicole Weber’s (Germany) Odu was probably the most stunning design work in the lot, including a full physical mock-up and UI design concepts. It’s an unusual combination of physical interface and Web-based sonic engine. On the Web side, users find sample content through a browser interface. On the physical side, a handheld interface turns those samples into tangible objects for manipulation and performance.

LUM is a music interface that translates the position in space (xyz) of luminous spheres in to sound.
Each axis is given a parameter, X = pitch, Y = loudness & Z = effects, although these may change.

The “controllers” incorporate 2 different colored LEDs each one activated by different buttons, allowing the user to handle 2 instruments simultaneously. The project was born in 2007 but is professionalised in late 2009.
