The Berklee College of Music is one of the leading centers in the world in the field of music. Its educational programs cover the whole spectrum of music creation and music industry which makes it the largest laboratory of music learning of today and tomorrow.
Berklee College of Music will be presenting two projects by its students on the master’s degree in Music Technology Innovation:
The Sing Song Table, a project by student Luke Dennis, urns a simple Ping Pong table into a powerful synthesizer and sequencer. A unique range of contact and motion sensors pick up the players’ movements and the impulses of the ball and send them to a computer program, making the game into an original song. Players can choose presets of different styles or load their own samples to personalize the experience.
A MIDI controller allows a third player to control the path of the sensor and the audio parameters to mix the music as the game unfolds.
The Flex Sleeves literally put the potential of a recording studio in a singer’s hands and arms. With a movement of their arms, the singer can control and shape their voice live, while providing sounds, loops, and applying effects at the same time as visuals and lights. These sleeves react to muscle movement, so all you have to do is flex your muscles.
The Flex Sleeves is a project by Berklee student Xander. He will be performing with the flex sleeves using an original composition by music producer Micetro.
