EA+THE BOARD 3.0
Tactile, audio and video responsive platform.
The current version (2.1) is a rigid platform on which is stretched an artist canvas. On the back of this platform are piezoelectric sensors which transcribe the slightest impulses and friction on the canvas. These sounds and impulses are transmitted to the sound designer who modulates and sequences them to form a complex musical frame.
The challenge with version 3.0 is to create an extremely fine and resistant tactile layer over the entire surface, between the platform and the canvas, which can transcribe in real time all the interventions, impulses, lines and other movements on the surface of the canvas. made by the percussionist painter, in order to send to the video designer data due to be visually processed.
Thus, the affected areas on the platform will be spatialized in the same way by the sound projection and by the visual projection.
In addition, the XY coordinate information of the touch layer can be used to determine the amplitude or pitch of the note.
