Watch This is a demo of the Poppy robot (http://www.poppy-project.org) performing electronic music from the movements of its own body, by interaction with a human. Drum samples are triggered by the movements of the left foot (kick) and the head (snare). The movements of the left shoulder modulates the pitch of a synthesized sound as well as the cutoff frequency of a low-pass filter applied on it. The grunt is triggered by the right hand movements.
This was done by four members of the Flowers group at Inria Bordeaux: Clément Moulin-Frier, Pierre Rouanet, Matthieu Lapeyre and Steve Nguyen.
