Dodecaudion is an electronic music controller for DJs, performers and professional musicians.
This spatial audiovisual controller is in the shape of a regular dodecahedron. Each of its walls is equipped with an infrared-detecting "eye" that collects information on the presence and position of the musician's hand. Dodecaudion is thus a gestural instrument that creates new musical space during performances.
The heart of Dodecaudion is Arduino, an in-built electronic platform, the use of which was made possible thanks to the concept of open technologies (Open Source as well as Creative Commons and MIT licenses). Arduino collects data from all its sensors and sends them to a computer. Apart from live performances, the data can be used in any way, whether sound processing and synthesis or to create visual effects.
The product comes with Hedoco certificate.
