    Elle et la voix

Artist(s) and People Involved:



Artist Statement:

    Interactive installation at IRCAM, salle Igor Stravinsky

    A meeting with a virtual character, Elle (She), living only in the memory of the computer. Elle is a digital avatar using behavior models. The visitors’ presence and motions of the visitors are analyzed in real-time and allow a first interaction with Elle. Their voices are then captured in real-time and is influencing File’s own voice, thanks to a new voice technology and spatialization from IRCAM. A strange meeting both audio and visual, a first step towards a musical dialogue!
