Human Coded Orchestra

Video Showcase 2016
This is our installation, Human Coded Orchestra, a new approach to enable a group of individuals to sing in harmony by using computed directional speakers. The possibilities of musical performance by an untrained group have been explored in both scientific studies and artworks. However, previous work in this area has rarely gone beyond simple rhythm-based music and failed to achieve musical complexity. Human Coded Orchestra employs a number of directional speakers, each set at a different pitch, so that they will deliver different pitches to each participant to sing to, according to their positions. The present system does not require any preparation on the part of singers, which opens up the possibility of practical application in the interactive performance area.
