Title: Physical navigation of visual timbre spaces with timbreID and DILIB
Author: Brent, William
Abstract: This paper summarizes recent development of two open source software libraries that enable auditory display in Pure Data (Pd), and describes developing projects that were achieved using the two packages in tandem. The timbreID feature extraction and classification library enables real- and non-real-time audio analysis via high-level modules that can be programmed for a variety of purposes. DILib (the Digital Instrument Library) provides software tools for accessing and managing gestural control streams as captured by inexpensive, widely available sensor hardware. Realized at the intersection of these software packages, three applications are discussed from technological and performative viewpoints: a system for navigating visual timbre spaces with gestures drawn from full body tracking, a similar system based on open-air infrared fingertip tracking, and the Gesturally Extended Piano--an augmented instrument controller that uses piano performance gestures to create visually explicit action-sound relationships.
