  • Phisynth

    This instrument was created as part of our latest interactive dance spectacle “Absorbe-moi” The starting idea was to create an instrument dealing with sound synthesis and reacting directly with the movement of the 2 dancers. Their movement is tracked live and analyzed by another computer, collecting the main characteristics of it (X position, Y position, Height, Width, X gravity, Y gravity, speed and luminosity). This continuous flux of data is smoothed, then transmitted as normalized data into the synth trough 8 channels, used to modulate the main parameter of the sound, like the oscillators frequency, the filters cutoff frequency, their resonance, etc..., or used to control events like the retriggering of envelopes, zeroing the oscillator phase, modifying their wave shape, controlling the rate of the sequencers, or the spatial position of the sound sources in the set (a quadriphonic system is used here).
