“Politician’s Speech” is an interactive installation. People can make a speech about a momentous political topic by gesturing. Important political speeches are no longer for les hômmes d’État only, now everyone is invited to act and give speeches.

There are distance sensors built into the microphones, which read the gestures, feeding this data into a microcontrolled sensorBox (→ ACSensorizer), which converts the signals to harmonized MIDI data and sends them …

[multilanguage entry] kII (Kempelen 2.0) is a voice-topological interface for gestural navigation in linguistic space. The hand serves as the speech organ during the articulation process.
The device is operated by means of the sensory determination of the opened state of both hands, their position in space, their relative height, and other parameters which are assigned to the jaw and tongue position in the mouth as well as to pitch and rhythm.

One thing that really annoys me when I’m programming the elsewise great Lego Mindstorms® Set, is the need to upload the firmware and all programs again, when one has to exchange the batteries. This has been fixed for the brand-new NXT System, but how to deal with that for the oder RCX? Yep. Connecting a Power Supply is easy:

I just released an application interface “kII” to control the SpeakJet, an integrated robot-voice soundchip from Magnevation, by MIDI.
Some of the features include Jaw-/Tongue-Position Control, Note-pitched voicings, subtractive synthesis built up with the SpeakJet’s five oscillators as well as a small integrated harmonizer module. You can set up a base note and a scale and have therefore absolute control!

kII stands for “Kempelen Two”: Baron Wolfang von Kempelen …

Anlässlich der Blauen Nacht 2006 in Nürnberg (laut Flyer immerhin Deutschlands größter Kunst- und Kulturnacht), habe ich die Kontaktstation um die Versionsnummer 2.0 und zwei Terminals erweitert.

Die erste Sprachmaschine überhaupt (ungeachtet der Tatsache, dass bereits um das 13. Jhdt. Lockrufe durch Lunge, Kehlkopf und Brustkorb toter Kraniche zur Vogeljagd benutzt wurden) stammt 1773 von Christian Kratzenstein.

Etwa zur gleichen Zeit begann auch Baron Wolfgang von Kempelen mit Experimenten zur Imitation menschlicher Sprache. Baron von Kempelen ist heute hauptsächlich wegen seines schachspielenden Türken bekannt; “eine Maschine, die es durch das Nichtwissen um ihre Funktion …

Das m2 war ein Klangraum, in dem jeder Musiker sein kann.
Im m3 ist der Raum aufgeklappt und konsequent verdichtet worden – nun ein Tor, das man durchschreiten kann und so Musik und Sounds erzeugt bzw. verändert.

Natürlich kann man auch im Tor verweilen, stehenbleiben, tanzen, hindurchkriechen… und dabei hören, wie die eigenen Bewegungen ein ganzes Sound-Universum verändern.

Der 2-dimensionale Zwischenraum entfaltet eine äußerst …
