How to jam?
Get voice from the microphone input of player
Duo-1such that pitch and loudness are estimated using Bela.
Audio samples are retrieved based on the keywords selected by player
Duo-2, who can control the samples later by a midi sequencer (or other gestural interfaces) to jam with
Based on both audio and visual feedback, two players can gamifying the jam.
To be precise on the visualization,
Duo-1can make the avatar jump higher through singing higher, and move faster by singing louder. In the meanwhile, how the blocks look like is decided by
In terms of audio feedback, global tempo can be increased by louder voice from
Duo-1. Each block is associated to an audio sample decided by
