Scott Tooby’s Sonic Mirror #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Awesome interactive sound installation from Scott Tooby:
The Sonic Mirror is an audio-reactive electronic instrument that automatically generates soundscapes and music from recorded sounds of its environment. Through the combination of DIY audio software, machine listening, and embeddable computing, the instrument creates interactive sound installations that augment auditory perception and foster a deeper connection to the world through sound.
Developed with SuperCollider, the Sonic Mirror software instrument performs real-time digital audio recording, analysis, and synthesis. Machine listening algorithms extract features from detected sounds (e.g. loudness, pitch, duration, timbre), and based on the analysis, the system dynamically renders a soundscape from recorded sounds using a variety of audio synthesis techniques (e.g. pitch shifting, time stretching, granular and concatenative synthesis).
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
