Schacher, Jan C.

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

In this paper mappings and adaptation in the context of interactive sound installations are discussed. Starting from an ecological perspective on non-expert audience interaction a brief overview and discussion of mapping strategies with a special focus on adaptive systems using machine learning algorithms is given. An audio-visual interactive installation is analyzed and its implementation used to illustrate the issues of audience engagement and to discuss the efficiency of adaptive mappings.
