Visuosonics Software

Since February 2010 I’ve worked on a series of applications which allow motion capture for performance as part of the Visuosonics research project at Southampton Solent University. The research:

uses real-time sound-image interactivity to create immersive environments in which the art gallery, the concert hall, the theatre and the cinema converge into a ‘total’ performance space.

My contribution involved creating bridging applications in Max/MSP which would allow hardware to be used with a variety of software front-ends. This included:

  • Vision motion capture: USB or Firewire camera → capture software → OSC receiving software.
  • Gesture motion capture: Acceleglove → capture software → OSC receiving software.

For details on how to use an Acceleglove in Max/MSP, please see the Acceleglove capture in Max/MSP tutorial.

How did this project use Max?

To motion track through a camera and (via mxj) to connect to an Acceleglove data glove.
