A synthesizer for expressive musical interactions

Embodme opens doors for expressive musical interactions combining precision of touch and freedom of gesture. Our technology is based on two interaction spaces: a vision module captures fingers and hands movement in space, while a touch sensitive module accurately measures the position and force applied onto a 21 inch surface. If a slider or knob allows one to modify a single parameter at a time, a hand captured in 3D can vary up to 22 parameters simultaneously. This new way of control frees up the richness of synthesis modules, which need to vary multidimensionally in order to reveal their full potential.
