2006 to 2008

At the University of Leeds we developed a system for tracking string instruments using a Vicon motion capture system. The project was part of a European research project focussed on technology enhanced music education.

The application, called AMIR (augmented mirror), records and visualizes the movement of the instrument in 3D for assessing different playing techniques. The application was built using Max for which I developed a library of objects (MAV) using C++, which allowed us to efficiently process and visualize our data.
