Abstract

PlaY+SPaCE is a music technology system developed over the past five years, comprised of hardware and software components that enable users to trigger or play sounds, music and video in a non-tactile environment. Eight ultrasonic sensors are used to detect the distances of people within an empty space of up to 100sqm, data from the sensors then relayed to a computer. Proprietary software utilises the data to trigger music in the form of samples, sequences and loops, and may also be used to activate video stills and sequences.

Following the development of the Play+SPaCE system to a level of stability in both the hardware and software, the Special Studies Program (SSP) period was utilised to initially explore possible applications of the system in various environments, and to further develop the software towards existing as a stand-alone application suited to use both with and without the hardware system.
