Hi to all beatboxers!
I’m a PhD Student at Integra Lab, Birmingham City University (UK). My research is focused on the design and development of an application for mobile devices and Myo armband, which allows beatboxers to spatialise their vocal’s sounds through already learnt gestures.
Below you find a video clip realised during tests to explore the Myo armband capabilities.
During the last year my work has already been published and presented in various conferences: ICAD (Austria), CUK (UK), MTFScandi (Sweden), MTFCentral (Slovenia), RESCON14 (UK), RESCON15 (UK), Royal College of Music (UK) and the software developed through the gained knowledge has been used for Contemporary music performances at Frontiers Festival (UK), electroAQustica (Italy), EmuFest (Italy).
I’m currently designing a new application, which will be able to sample and loop and process beatboxers’ vocal sounds using gestural control.
To do so, I’m gathering data and ideas through looking at performances and published interviews. Unfortunately, there is hardly any material concerning this topic on the internet; thus, I need to collect such info from you guys.
To do so, I’m looking forward to interviewing you!
