AVZones (AudioVisual Zones) is an iPad audiovisual app – an audio sequencer/looper with a visualizer. By default, 3 audiovisual columns or “zones” allow for the manipulation of 3 audio loops. Each zone had 3 XY pads for audio manipulation: pitch shift, delay and filter. There are 9 sounds available per zone. The application is scalable: the number of zones, XY pads and sounds can be modified in the code. AVZones is open source and work in progress, built with openFrameworks and Maximilian, and part of the Enabling AVUIs research project.

Gen.AV is a platform for the development of, and performance with, generative audiovisual tools. Workshops, hackathons and performances have been organised as part of this platform. It is part of the Enabling AVUIs research project. Video above is from 6/2/2015 performance in London.
“Enabling Audiovisual User Interfaces” is a 2-year research project, supported by a Marie Curie EU fellowship, being conducted at EAVI, Goldsmiths. During the project, I will investigate how human-computer interactions can be audiovisualized in order to improve user experience and usability. To address this issue, a new UI paradigm is proposed – AVUI (AudioVisual User Interface). AVUI links interaction, sound and image, building upon the concept of Graphical User Interface (GUI) by adding interconnected sound and image.
The project deals with the social aspect of participation and musicianship dynamics in collective music performance. The PESI research proposes a novel collaborative environment using mobile phones as tangible and expressive musical instruments, in parallel with a spatial system. This extended system incorporates the mobile instruments and motion tracking technology to create an environment in which performers are not only free to move and interact with each other but where their social interactions contribute to the sonic outcome. PESI system is designed for co-located collaboration and provides embodied and spatial opportunities for musical exploration.

AV Clash is a Web-based project by Video Jack (André Carrilho and Nuno Correia, with Gokce Taskan), which allows for the creation of audiovisual compositions, consisting of combinations of sound and audio-reactive animation loops. The sounds in AV Clash are retrieved from Freesound.org, an online sound database.
