The Future of the Music Animation Machine
And Other Music-Related Projects
What's next up for the M.A.M.? There are a lot of possibilities.
First, there're lots of features and variations to the M.A.M. itself:
Note shapes to reflect the envelope (continuous amplitude) of the sounds
Using real-time variations in the note (e.g. changes in intensity, size, shape,
etc.) to reflect changes in pitch, volume, or timbre
Using a fisheye lens-type view to enhance the
Multiple onscreen windows (e.g. to compare two performances, or parts of the
same performance, etc.)
More robust feature-set for the M.A.M. editor: transpose, group operations,
etc., etc., etc.
Incorporating the Voice Tracker
into the M.A.M. display
Incorporating DYAD-like features into the M.A.M.
A version of the M.A.M. for Windows
A version of the M.A.M. for Java
Second, there are several M.A.M.-related projects that don't necessarily
involve changing the M.A.M. itself, but using the M.A.M. software (or just the
idea) as part of other things:
Music Animation Machine CD, M.A.M. companion scores
for good recordings
Gamelan M.A.M., a way to study gamelan performance practice and compositions
Third, there are some non-M.A.M. music- and music-visualization-related
Oskarettes; the main unfinished project is to extract gestures from
musical renditions and allow these to control the motion of fluid shapes,
such as jellyfish.
Music Visualization Development System, perhaps based on
a game machine
