Video ©QuentinChevrier : a presentation of Como at work with children allows to translate recorded gestures into sound in order to animate a story in an interactive way. is designed for children and teachers to enable the creation of sound and moving stories. 


Based on software COMO from IRCAM for Smartphones, the project is a collaboration between the ISMM-Interaction Son Musique Mouvement team of IRCAM-STMS and the Motion Lab team of CRI Paris. Resulting from the Element research project, is an extension of the CoMo application (for Collaborative Motion; it can be tried here). The Element project allows to "stimulate the learning of movements in human-computer interactions". The aim is to create both motion vocabularies and to design computational models capable of analyzing users' movements in real time to provide multimodal feedback.

Gesture exploration for COMO in Smartphones



The CoMo ecosystem was initiated within the framework of the RAPID-

MIX project, an Innovation Action funded by the European Commision


(H2020-ICT-2014-1 Project ID 644862). Current supports include

the ELEMENT project (ANR-18-CE33-0002). It uses the Soundworks

framework developed in the CoSiMa project (ANR-13-CORD-0010),

developed by Benjamin Matuszweski, Norbert Schnell and Sébastien


Robaszkiewicz, Waves libraries developed in the Wave project (ANR-

12-CORD-0027) and the XMM library developed by Jules Françoise.
