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).
