One of my initial concepts directly involves creating more of a physical experience when playing music through a computer. The Arduino microcontroller can be hacked via midi conversion software in order to work with or control various programmes which could provide the bridge between the sound and the desired interaction for my project. So far I am looking into a number of methods through programmes and plugins such as Q-Lab, Midi-Stroke, Bome, Max MSP and Pure Data.
Another method of creating this bridge between the technological and interactive aspects of my concepts could be through the use of RFID chips and Scannable technology. Through some of the midi plug-ins listed above there are various ways of making the RFIDs trigger different reactions and controlling software functions. This could be used in relation to some of my concepts to trigger songs on iTunes or other programmes covering this technological side of the interactions I wish to replicate or create.
