Sounds.pink: accessible tools for building AI-powered musical interfaces
Incorporate AI-powered motion capture into your creative practice! Sounds.pink is a toolset that allows you to work with state-of-the art models for pose detection, hand detection, and emotion recognition, and pipe the output into projects with NO CODE! In this workshop, participants will be guided through creating a simple project to introduce them to the toolchain with Max/MSP, and if time permits, a second integration with their favorite DAW. Participants will need a computer with a webcam and basic knowledge of Max/MSP, but I aim to make this workshop as accessible as possible, so if any of this sounds interesting, you should show up!
