Funky Sole Music: Gait Recognition and Adaptive Mapping


We present Funky Sole Music, a musical interface employing a sole embedded with three force sensitive resistors in combination with a novel algorithm for continuous movement classification. A heuristics-based music engine has been implemented, allowing users to control high-level parameters of the musical output. This provides a greater degree of control to users without musical expertise compared to what they get with traditional media playes. By using the movement classification result not as a direct control action in itself, but as a way to change mapping spaces and musical sections, the control possibilities offered by the simple interface are greatly increased.
