InterFaceOff!

Rudi Giot and his courageous team of industrial engineering students at ISIB are so confident that they can interface any controller (or indeed any object) to Kyma, they have issued a challenge to all plan to attend KISS2013:

Come to KISS2013 with whatever you want to use as a controller, and you will leave with your own Kyma performance interface!

Modeled on a reality-TV-style creative competition, in InterFaceOff, teams of engineers and musicians will address the challenges of creating a new performance interface in just four days during this year’s Kyma International Sound Symposium.

Let’s meet the team: Alexandra, Mohamed, Steve, Herman, Rudi, Aurore, Damien (seated on floor), Jean-Guillaume, Minh and robot, Nao!

In partnership with OpenInterface.org, Rudi and his team at ISIB have been hard at work extending this universal interface builder to communicate with Kyma via Open Sound Control.  Now they’re ready to put that knowledge to the test!

Are you ready to face off?  Reserve your spot soon, providing some background information on your desired controller and contact info so the team can ask you questions.

Participation is FREE with KISS2013 registration, but spaces are filling up fast, so it would be a good idea to reserve early!

You may even be ready to perform your new instrument in the final concert.  These guys are that good!

InterFaceOff was inspired by René Magritte’s “The Double Secret” (1927)
