Collidoscope is an interactive, collaborative sound installation and musical instrument (granular synthesizer) that allows participants to seamlessly record, manipulate, explore and perform real-world sounds. It is designed for both amateurs and professional musicians.
Collidsocope massively drives on the research conducted at the Center for Digital Music at Queen Mary University of London in real-time sound processing and synthesis, hardware design, physical computing, UI design, designing for interaction, accessibility and collaboration.
The granular synthesis engine is based on Ross Becina's paper "Implementing Real-Time Granular Synthesis":http://www.cs.au.dk/~dsound/DigitalAudio.dir/Papers/BencinaAudioAnecdotes310801.pdf, on the TGrains Unit Generator of the SuperCollider language and on the Cross-modal DAW Prototype developed in the EPSRC funded project Design Patterns for Inclusive Collaboration (DePIC)
