Research mission

Tonight I’m starting this blog where I’ll post articles about my research project on tactile devices.

THE MISSION (in short)

Contact speakers are sound devices which turn any surface into a resonant instrument. My research will focus on the possibilities given by the use of multiple contact speakers, connected with their tactile capabilities: multiple sources of vibration can stimulate our tactile perception in different parts of our body (what I call “spatialization of the tactile sensation“), for example if applied on a chair. Sound can then not only be heard, but also “touched”. Being able to separately control multiple vibration devices means also to identify spatial implications of sound movement, which opens up the path for an artistic use of the sound system.

On the other hand, making objects vibrate may lead to create even visual results…

 

This research project is funded by Kulturbryggan (Sweden). The activities at the Darmstadt Ferienkurse (August 2014) are also supported by Kungliga Musikaliska Akademien (Sweden).
