Make your Movements Hearable
Technology for contemporary artists: SOMI-1 is a highly precise sensor technology that measures motion and transforms it into sound in real-time with unprecedented latency. The sensors are worn as wearables on the wrists and ankles, turning the user into an instrument.
Create Sound via Movement
A single SOMI-1 sensor measures accelerations and inclinations in three-dimensional space. Thus, each sensor provides six motion parameters in total, which are used for high precision tracking of a single body part. Furthermore, additional dimensionless parameters such as activity are exposed by the SOMI-1 receiver.
Up to seven sensors can be used simultaneously with a single SOMI-1 receiver, creating incredible soundscapes and allowing multiple artists to operate at the same time.
One of the essential things that makes SOMI-1 remarkable is the SOMI-1 Bluetooth® receiver. The receiver connects to your mobile device, computer, DJ-Mixer or synthesizer via USB or DIN-MIDI and receives the data from the SOMI-1 wearables wirelessly via Bluetooth® 5.
The advantage: The receiver guarantees the fastest possible transmission of the sensor wearable data, regardless of your smartphone model or other end device. In addition, the receiver can be connected directly to any MIDI-capable instrument, so that even effects on DJ mixers or parameters of vintage synthesizers can be controlled by the SOMI-1 wearables.
Bluetooth® range: Up to 150 meters (490 feet)
Easy Usage, Unique Result
With the SOMI-1 app, sounds can be created and controlled directly from a mobile device (iOS and Android). By using the app's various sound plugins and corresponding presets, users can instantly and easily control sounds in combination with the SOMI-1 wearables without any pre-knowledge.
Connect the SOMI-1 receiver, open up the SOMI-1 app, start making music via movement!
The Upcoming Crowd-Funding Campaign
SOMI-1 will be launched via a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter, which will come up in the next months. This means that SOMI-1 will be available for pre-order at discounted prices during a 30 day campaign. Each pre-order helps us to realize the first production batch of the product. Thus, backers are not only customers, but also actively participate in the realization of the product and our vision. In the first days we will additionally offer a limited special early-bird price to thank our active community.
