Le Biniou works with music, voice, ambient sounds, whatever acoustic source you choose.
When you run Le Biniou it gives an evolutionary rendering of the sound you are playing.
You are given two options to run Le Biniou : You can manage entirely the sequences and choose your own series of
... [More] pictures from the default library, your colour scales, the kind of alteration you want to apply or you can let Le Biniou's artificial intelligence run on its own.
Forget the old visualizations you are familiar with, discover a new multidimensional – spatial and chromatic – way of comprehending music and sounds for either artistic, recreational or didactic purposes. [Less]
The project develops a stand-alone device in a small form factor that is capable of rendering MilkDrop-esque visuals effects in real time, with a high level of interaction with many sensors and using live audio and video streams as a base.
Open source components and design tools have been developed
... [More] or used as much as possible. A system-on-chip implemented in a FPGA has been chosen for meeting this goal at the IP core level.
The flexibility of the FPGA enables advanced users to modify the design, and also permits compact integration of many interfaces (MIDI, OSC, DMX512, analog sensors, video inputs), making Milkymist™ a platform of choice for the mobile VJ.
The design is also highly modular and documented, making the code easy to re-use in other open source system-on-chips. [Less]
