Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR INTERFACING SOUND SYNTHESIS TO MOVEMENT
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'INTERFACAGE: SYNTHESE DES SONS - MOUVEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
High-dimensional descriptions of data or 'manifolds' (40, 62), such as the plurality of parameters that characterize sound, are mapped into two or three dimensions. A 'manifold interface' provides the translation to sound signal generation (62) or to other multidimensional data bases. The manifold interface technology translates movements (30) performed in the three-dimensional space into movements in a high-dimensional parameter space. A three-dimensional virtuality reality environment (20) captures movement (30) of an object. The system maps (12) the location of the object to a location in a multidimensional phase space (14). The phase space (14) represents all the permissible combinations of parameter values of an algorithm where trajectories (30) of input gestures are encoded. For display, the systems reduces (12) the dimension of the phase space (56) to three dimensions (50) of a window space (10), which translates the multidimensional information for the phase space to render an image (50) of relationships between the location of the object and the numerical values assumed by the parameters in correspondence to the location of the object.

Des descriptions multidimensionnelles de données où 'd'ensembles' (40, 62), tels que la pluralité de paramètres caractérisant le son, sont mappés en deux ou trois dimensions. Une 'interface d'ensemble' permet le transcodage en génération de signaux sonores (62) ou bien en d'autres bases de données multidimensionnelles. Cette technique d'interface d'ensemble transcode des mouvements (30) exécutés dans l'espace tridimensionnel en mouvements se situant dans un espace paramétrique multidimensionnel. Un environnement de réalité virtuelle tridimensionnel (20) capte le mouvement (30) d'un objet. Le système mappe (12) l'emplacement de l'objet sur un emplacement dans un espace de phase multidimensionnel (14). Cet espace de phase (14) représente toutes les combinaisons admissibles des valeurs paramétriques d'un algorithme où sont codées les trajectoires (30) des gestes introduits. Pour l'affichage, le système réduit (12) la dimension de l'espace de phase (56) à trois dimensions (50) d'un espace fenêtre (10), lequel transcode les informations multidimensionnelles concernant l'espace de phase en vue de restituer une image (50) des relations entre l'emplacement de l'objet et les valeurs numériques prises par les paramètres en fonction de l'emplacement de l'objet.
