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. The sensors are worn as wearables on the wrists and ankles, turning the user into an instrument.
Create Sound via Movement
Each SOMI-1 sensor provides eight different motion parameters that can be used independently to change or trigger the sound.
The sound can either be generated via the SOMI-1 smartphone app, which offers several different sound presets, or by any MIDI capable instrument or music software – for example Ableton Live.
Up to six sensors can be used simultaneously with a single SOMI-1 receiver, creating incredible soundscapes and allowing multiple artists to operate together.
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.
The motion data is received wirelessly by the SOMI-1 receiver. This is where the magic happens. The receiver guarantees an extremely fast Bluetooth transmission time of under 10ms and offers ranges of up to 50 meters.
And it’s really easy to use: Simply connect the receiver to your smartphone via USB, open up the SOMI-1 app, choose a preset and start making music via movements. Same for all of your MIDI compatible instruments and music applications.
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.
