Urbez Capablo designs the software for the Pollywogs project, shown at Sónar‘12


Urbez Capablo, a former student of the Postgraduate Course in Designing Interactive Musical Systems (CDSIM), has designed the algorithmic composition software for the Pollywogs project shown at the latest edition of Sónar in 2012. The project was created by Roland Olbeter, a German artist who is a point of reference in robotic engineering and scenographic design.

Applying knowledge together with composition and programming techniques acquired during this course, Capablo has produced software that allows robots to interpret complex compositions that can be created instantly and automatically by using simple melodies entered or hummed by the audience.
