"It's a three dimensional sequencer, the ultimate combinatory audiovisual drum computer, triggered by motion, speed, directions, collisions, there is an infinite number of possibilities, it became an instrument of its own, I nicknamed it the "Drumuter".
Drumuter uses a 10x10 matrix, composed of 1000 3D sound-objects triggered (playing sound) when a user's proximity has reached a minimum limit. If a user stands still depending on its exact position, he will hear either silence, either the same sound player forever and ever. If a user moves slower than the sample time he will hear successively all the line's (or loop pattern) sounds, moving faster cuts the sounds, slipping the faster it goes into clicks and cuts.
Looping users movement thanks to a collision box which replace the user on its displacement vector, music becomes the combinatory play of parameters as turn angle (0 to 360°), direction vector (forward, backward, up down) and speed (0 to 100 meters/second).
