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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
