Abstract

Sonification is an interdisciplinary field of research, aiming at generating sound from data based on systematic, objective and reproducible transformations. Towards this direction, expressive gestures play an important role in music performances facilitating the artistic perception by the audience. Moreover, emotions are linked with music, as sound has the ability to evoke emotions. In this vein, a combinatory approach which aims at gesture and emotion sonification in the context of music composition and performance is presented here. The added value of the proposed system is that both gesture and emotion are able to continuously manipulate the reproduced sound in real-time.
