Gesture Controlled Audio Systems (ConGAS) was an EU COST Action running from 2004 to 2007.
Oslo Laptop Orchestra (OLO) is an ad-hoc ensemble consisting of students and faculty from the University of Oslo and Norwegian Academy of Music. The main idea is to explore the laptop as a musical instrument in a collaborative setting. The orchestra performs the standard repertoire for laptop orchestras, and develops own pieces for different setups and constellations.
Oslo Mobile Orchestra (previously Oslo iPhone Ensemble) explores the future of mobile music performance in a collaborative setting. The ensemble is an ad-hoc group of students and researchers from the University of Oslo and Norwegian Academy of Music.
Postdoctoral researcher Kyrre Glette participated in (and won!) the 64kB intro competition at the Assembly computer festival in Helsinki. A 64kB intro is an executable program in 64kB which includes realtime generation of graphics and music.
The animation includes a dancing robot, where the motion is based on data recorded with our new Qualisys infrared motion capture system.
Graphics programming done by Kim Kalland, Thomas Kristensen and Kyrre Glette. Sound programming and music by Gergely Szelei-Kis.
Texas Tech Discoveries has published a story called "Movement and Musical Meaning" where they present Bill Westney's work and his participation in the NNIMIPA workshop in Oslo last year. During the workshop we made video recordings of a recital (including rehearsal) and motion capture recordings in the lab.
Postdoctoral researcher Alexander Refsum Jensenius just published the book “Musikk og bevegelse” (Music and movement). This is a text book in Norwegian giving an overview of theory and methods used in the study of music-related movements.

Alexander Refsum Jensenius recently presented the paper “Motion-sound Interaction Using Sonification based on Motiongrams” at the ACHI 2012 conference in Valencia, Spain.
Abstract: The paper presents a method for sonification of human body motion based on motiongrams. Motiongrams show the spatiotemporal development of body motion by plotting average matrices of motion images over time. The resultant visual representation resembles spectrograms, and is treated as such by the new sonifyer module for Jamoma for Max, which turns motiongrams into sound by reading a part of the matrix and passing it on to an oscillator bank. The method is surprisingly simple, and has proven to be useful for analytical applications and in interactive music systems.

We are happy to welcome Yago de Quay for a Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) through the COST IC0601 Action on Sonic Interaction Design (SID). He will be working at fourMs from 2 August to 30 September with a project entitled Interactive Music 2.0: User-driven ad hoc dance clubs . Bio and more information below.
fourMs (Music, Mind, Motion, Machines) is an interfacultary research lab focused on topics on the boundaries of music, cognition and technology. From 2018 the fourMs activities are continued within RITMO - Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies of Rhythm, Time and Motion, a Norwegian Centre of Excellence.
