Ariel Elkin: AriVibes, a musical augmenter for iOS

Screenshot of AriVibes version 1

AriVibes is an iOS app designed to enable users to musically transform the sounds of physical objects. In other words, it is a portable, self-contained augmented reality system that allows a user to shape and control the perceived timbre of objects, to enable a wide range of users to use any object as a musical instrument.

The musical augmentation proposed is achieved by altering the timbre of an object with audio effects,  and offering real-time control over one or more augmentation parameters.

 

 

 

On Thursday, January 26th, I’d like to present the research and the design concepts behind its making.

 

And do a live demo with some beatboxing… See a teaser here:
