Microphone turns any surface into a touch interface

Bruno Zamborlin, is an academic researcher who holds a Joint PhD in Arts and Computational Technologies between IRCAM/Centre Pompidou in Paris and Goldsmiths, University of London. As member of the RealTime Musical Interactions team at IRCAM and the Embodied AudioVisual Interaction team at Goldsmiths Digital Studios, he’s exploring new methods for gesture based interaction and its applications in performing arts and the creation of new musical instruments.

His latest project is called Mogees, which uses gesture recognition to control electronic musical instruments. Physical modeling is used to convert the wave form of sounds picked up by the microphone into the audible output of the electronic instruments.

Check out the video for some examples of what’s possible:
