OVERVIEW

Research done in this focus area includes new approaches for image clustering, and investigations into how computational intelligence techniques can be used to analyze and understand the content of images and video streams. This research focus area also develops image recognition and tracking systems, with the first application being to the design of a virtual mixer for music.

 Title:

 Gesture Recognition with Application in Music Arrangement

 Abstract:

This thesis studies the interaction with music synthesis systems using hand gestures. Traditionally users of such systems were limited to input devices such as buttons, pedals, faders, and joysticks. The use of gestures allows the user to interact with the system in a more intuitive way. Without the constrain of input devices, the user can simultaneously control more elements within the music composition, thus increase the level of the system's responsiveness to the musician's creative thoughts. A working system of this concept is implemented, employing computer vision and machine intelligence techniques to recognise the user's gestures.
