I’ve got a presentation coming up in a month and some change (more on that in another post), and I want to blend spoken word poetry, music, and programming. Currently I’m thinking of using something called a “pitch follower” as the core program.
Based on what value(s) I look for, I want to have different inflections of my voice trigger a process that could, for instance,
- Play (or stop) a sequence of notes or a chord progression,
- Apply effects to the audio input,
- Trigger another process to generate audio that gets played later or on the fly
- Control a visual display
These are some of the possible uses running through my head. Hopefully I’ll have a demo file ready some time within the next couple of days.
