  • music installation project using sensors

    Hi all.
    Hoping someone may be able to help. I'm completely new to electronics in music so please bare with me.

    I have to do a music installation for my degree and I'm thinking of using sensors to trigger tracks of my composition based on movement (the more movement, the more tracks are triggered)

    As i say I'm completely new to this so if anyone can give me any tips on how to get started I'd be really grateful.

    I was asked a similar question by a Vassar student about 1990. One development was this: conductive rubber mats used to prevent static from damaging sensitive electronic components were set up as control voltage generators for old-fashioned synth modules. The mats served essentially as potentiometers with a DC voltage brought to one end, zero volts to the other, and dancers feet as the pickups for voltage sent to modules.

    These days I'm sure you could do a whole lot more with computer synthesis, say using a video image, picking a few pixel points on that image, interpreting pixel's brightness/color as control elements for "virtual" synth modules, for pitch, loudness, modulation etc. Movement to trigger sound? Program each sound module to remain silent unless there is a change in condition of the controlling pixel.

    I'm sure more ideas will follow, stay tuned! And welcome aboard!
    Enjoy. Every. Sandwich.

      Thanks for the fast reply and the welcome.

      This really is completely new to me as I'm mostly a classical performer but wanted to try something out of my comfort zone so thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into these. Im sure more questions will follow too
