Next Generation Electronic Musical Instrument.
A life time journey.
“(...) The fifth milestone will mark the resolution of still-unresolved design issues
and the crystallisation of still-forming concepts into the many potential forms
of the electronic musical instrument.
The electronic musical instrument, after all, can take any form.
It can play any music. And it can be played in any way.
In one form or another, it just may meet everyone's musical needs.”
"ELECTRIC SOUND" Joel Chadabe, Prentice Hall, 1997
(V) FIVE is an indipendent project run by Marco Palmieri Music Legacy.
Aim: creating and selling electronic musical instruments that unify recreational and playful activities with educational and cultural ones.
Target: all sound and musical language operators. Furthermore, any individual who let the musical activity be a way for self exploration and awareness.
Marco Palmieri: "I am interested in electronic musical instrument issues since more than 20 years. Beside my school degree in programming electronic instruments and processing audio signal, the whole thing had been always more a 'life quest' or a life purpose than a structured plan. Somehow the story unfolded in the last 10 years as movement including other fellows musicians, composers, sound designers, recording artist, performers, audio engineers, IT wizards, crazy researchers, cognitive psychologists, doctors, pedagogy expert and so on ... indipendent, with pleasure"
We had been challenging many design issues mainly related to usability and versatility of the hardware and software interface (cfr. "...it can play any music. And it can be played in any way...").
The software integrates some of the already existing consumer and professional audio/music systems in one basic but highly customisable interface, following some principle we developed in order to let all the pieces working together.
The system allows any input (typing, voice control, audio, touch, holographic..) using already any existing instrument (from smart phones, to acoustic or electric instruments until complete audio workstations...) and it is outsourcing the processing of the information to a cloud based information management system.
For the nature of the project most of the information are until now protected in order to prevent any undesired misuse.
Nevertheless in our horizon we see also the Open Source as a way to proceed in our ongoing project development.
We are curious, grateful and looking forward to start any new collaboration and to welcome support and advices.
Many thanks to everyone supporting common sense and autonomy in freedom, pleasure and co-creation.
