Clavilux 2000 is the latest project by Jonas Friedemann Heuer who we already mentioned in the post about Noteput [vvvv], an interactive music table with tangible notes. Clavilux 2000 is an interactive instrument for generative music visualization created using the graphical programming environment – vvvv. The music visualization consists of a digital piano with 88 keys and midi output, a computer running a vvvv patch and a vertical projection above the keyboard.
For every note played on the keyboard a new visual element appears in form of a stripe, which follows in its dimensions, position and colour the way the particular key was stroke: The length and vertical position show the velocity, the stripe’s width reflects the length of each note. Furthermore the system allows the piano player to switch between the standart 2d view and an additional 3d view of the visualization while playing. Read more..
The Clavilux 2000 project was supervised by Prof. Michael Götte and Veldana Sehic.
