New Mobile Tech Allows You to Make Mood Music with Body Language

Here’s an interesting report out of Norway:

Computer scientists and musicologists at the University of Oslo have developed new software that lets music lovers add their own personal touch to their music.

Kristian Nymoen at the university’s Department of Informatics said to Forskning.no: “With the new system you can use your smartphone and your movements to control how modern compositions sound. The composer’s task is to create a music landscape with a lot of musical soundscapes. Then you control which soundscapes you want to move between, and you can also decide yourself the routes you want to take within the various sound landscapes.”
