Please register by inserting your name below and let him know in what you are interested in so that he can prepare accordingly.

What is JUCE?

JUCE is an open source C++ framework for developing peformant, professional realtime Audio and Visual software.

Over the course of the week Kent will be researching the following 3 topics with the intent to build proof of concept imeplementations:

  1. JUCE development for live visual / video performance
  2. JUCE deployment for for the Raspberry PI platform.
  3. realtime audio analysis re-synthesis (FFT/iFFT) using JUCE

autoedit is a software tool using state-of-the-art (sota) music cognition methods to automatically make nicely consumable edits from lengthy session recordings. the workshop goal is to install the tool on your workstation to get you going. if you have a development setup and python3 environment on your machine, the requirements / dependencies can be installed with pip. the code itself can be obtained from https://gitlab.com/jetpack-cognition-lab/smp_audio


If there is interest Emmanuelle could present his project and bring a prototyp (4 cameras, 1 helmet , Laptop with software , VR google glasses:

The Hemosy is a virtual reality headset with cameras on the inside of the helmet to record the face of the user and project it in a VR environment. The connections of the Hemosy create the virtual platform Polis. The final objective of the project is to have a helmet that can be used for private face-to-face meeting in a virtual reality environment.

I this stage we have a helmet that can capture a video for two cameras and create a 3d face. The hope is too add other 2 or more cameras to be able to put the cameras close to the face and be able to add the VR google cardboard.

Gemeinsame autarke Klanginstallation

Vorschlag von Uwe: kollektive Klanginstallation auf dem Aussichtsturm Schwanden zu klären: ist das gestattet? Genehmigung ? evt. nur flashmob style an 1 Abend ? Stromversorgung: Autobatterie(n)? Fokus auf solar- & windbetriebene sowie akustische Klangerzeugung ?
