A Sound Controller That Uses Tattoo As A Music Score

March 29th, 2014 by

Ever come across one of those videos where you don’t really know what’s going on but you know that it’s definitely worth seeing?  If not, check this out – but first, a bit of explanation regarding what you’re about to see.  Personally this explanation didn’t really make things crystal clear for me, but whatever, this is mental…

‘this is a special instrument that combines human body and robotic system into a single entity that is designed to automate creative process in an attempt to represent the artist and his instrument as a creative hybrid. The device consists of a railing with comfortable hand holders and two parallel, but offset from each other black lines’ sensors that move along the arm using a stepper motor. It is equipped with a 3-dimensional Wii remote controller that uses the OSC protocol in order to give a possibility of additional expression achieved by moving hand in space.’

Got all that?  Good.  Now check this out.
