Michael Zbyszynski will present the RAPID-MIX API, an easy-to-use toolkit designed to enable artists, designers, makers, educators and creative companies, from beginners to independent developers, to use sensor integration, machine learning and interactive audio. It includes C++ and JavaScript libraries that make it easy to combine sensor data, machine learning algorithms and media output. They provide a full set of functionalities for cross-device and cross-platform development, modular components, and cloud-based services for multimodal data storage. The RAPID-MIX consortium includes researchers at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Goldsmiths University of London and IRCAM. We draw upon techniques from user-centred design to put the end users of our tools and products centre stage.

Dr. Michael Zbyszyński is a Research Associate in the Department of Computing, Goldsmiths. As a musician, his work spans from brass bands to symphony orchestras, including composition and improvisation with woodwinds and electronics. He has been a software developer at Avid, SoundHound, Cycling ’74, and Keith McMillen Instruments, and was Assistant Director of Pedagogy at UC Berkeley’s Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT). He holds a PhD from UC Berkeley and studied at the Academy of Music in Kraków on a Fulbright Grant. His work has been included in Make Magazine, the Rhizome Artbase, and on the ARTSHIP recording label.
