DranceWare: PureData/GEM: real-time music and visuals generation for the Drancing accelerometer music system (2008+)

Keywords:
Thie content or the technology discussed here is EXPERIMENTAL only
Drancing is Dr Darren's accelerometer music system, under development since about 1996. Some screenshots and descriptions of a recently developed rapid prototype of the DranceWare control software in the PureData visual synthesis language are given.

This prototype version of DranceWare was developed for 2 WiiTM Remotes and Mac OS X (HOWTO and downloads), although in principle - with minor adaptation - the system could be used on most operating systems and with any triaxial accelerometer source. Although only a prototype, the PureData/GEM patches presented here below are already effective in generating synthesised sound and visuals.
