Le son au bout des doigts is an installation shown 1.6.–18.6. at the Centre Pompidou and part of Ircam’s Manifeste festival.

It offers a playful, interactive, sonorous and visual journey for children ages two and up. Through manipulations and listening, the children’s sight and hearing is solicited. In Topo-phonie Café imagined by B. MacFarlane, the children are guided by a game of organic structures. They set special tables that create sonorous suprises.

With DIRTI developed by User Studio/Matthieu Savary, when children sink their hands in different materials that fill interactive tubs they set off sounds and images.

For  Topo-Phonie café I developed a new interaction method with a table, based on gesture recognition technology by the ISMM team and contact interaction.

For the Dirty Tangible Interfaces (DIRTI), I ported the sound engine to a Linux SBC and adapted the Mac software for the quadrophonic DIRTI XL.
