Abstract: Over the past years, music information research has elaborated powerful tools for creating a new generation of applications that redefine the boundaries of music listening and music making. The recent availability of affordable motion capture technology has not just allowed for creating novel musical instruments, but also for integrating the study of bodily motion and gesture into the mainstream of music information research. We will present a variety of playful real-time interactive applications based on analysis techniques and models combining digitized sounds, movements, and symbolic representations.
Bio: Norbert Schnell is researcher and developer at the Real-Time Musical Interactions team at IRCAM focussing on real-time digital audio processing techniques for interactive music applications. He studied Telecommunications and Music in Graz/Austria and worked as studio assistant at the IEM. At IRCAM he initiated and participated in numerous international research and development projects as well as artistic works in the field of interactive audio-visual installations, music pedagogy, and sound simulation. He chaired the 6th International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) in 2006 and held the DAAD Edgard Varèse Guest Professorship for Electronic Music at the Technische Universität Berlin in 2007. Currently he focuses on his PhD on the animation of digitized sounds and their re-embodiment by bodily movements and gestures.
