While an extensive palette of sound and visual generation techniques have been developed during the era of digital signal processing , the design of innovative virtual instruments has come to dramatic fruition over the last decade. The use of measured biological signals to drive these instruments proposes some new and powerful tools for clinical, scientific… (More)
This study proposes to use the analysis of physiological signals (electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyogram (EMG), heart beats etc) to control sound synthesis algorithms in order to build biologically driven musical instruments. A real time music synthesis environment and algorithms are developed to map these signals into sound. Finally, a "bio-orchestra",… (More)

— Recent advances in new technologies offer a large range of innovative instruments for designing and processing sounds. This paper reports on the results of a project that took place during the eNTERFACE06 summer workshop in Dubrovnik, Croatia. During four weeks, researchers from the fields of brain-computer interfaces and sound synthesis worked together… (More)
This paper describes <i>HUM</i>, an interactive art installation which interprets the behavior of the visitors on different time scales to render visual and sonic artwork in real-time. <i>HUM</i> was presented at BRASS cultural center (Brussels, Belgium) in May 2009.
This paper presents an approach for real-time sonification of physiological measurements and its extension to artistic creation. Three sensors where used to measure heart pulse, breathing, and tho-racic volume expansion. A different sound process based on sound synthesis and digital audio effects was used for each sensor. We designed the system in order to… (More)
In this paper, we introduce some exploratory ideas and applications involving the gestural control of sonic textures. Three examples of how the gestural control of synthesized textures can be implemented are presented: scratching textures, based on the gesturalized exploration of a visual space; dynamic noise filtering, where gestures influence a virtual… (More)
