Announcing Harmonic Motion: A toolkit for gestural sound and music

Harmonic Motion is a new open-source project I’m working on that’s looking to simplify working with gestural sensor data and make it easier to construct complex mappings.

The idea is to create an interface that allows data processing modules to be easily wired together into a pipeline. This pipeline can then be saved to file and loaded within C++ code, or used directly to send OSC/Midi. These modules will include things like noise reduction or point-to-point distance measurements.

If you’re interested in keeping up to date with the project, there is a specific mailing list on the Harmonic Motion site, as well as a quick survey to try to gauge interested parties’ backgrounds and feature wishlists.

I’m working on this project with the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary University of London as a part-time post-doc.
