InMuSIC - An Interactive Musical System for Electroacoustic Improvisation


InMuSIC is an Interactive Musical System designed for electroacoustic improvisation (clarinet and live electronics). The system relies on a set of musical interactions based on the multimodal analysis of the instrumentalist’s behaviour (upper-body motion tracking and audio features analysis). 

The aim is to investigate compositional and performative strategies for the establishment of a musical collaboration between the improviser and the system.

InMuSIC was developed at STEIM and at the Institute of Sonology during the Master by Research "Instruments & Interfaces".

The movement analysis implemented in InMuSIC is based on the EyesWeb platform. The InMuSIC framework for the analysis of expressive gestures refers to the research carried out by the international centre of research InfoMus - Casa Paganini.
