SIGGRAPHis a conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques in Vancouver this year.

This event was announced by ACM SIGGRAPH, a global non-profit organization working on the evolution of computer graphics and interactive technology, bringing together creators, users, researchers and more. I will meet you. The idea is to help build the "future of digital art and interactive design."

At this year's event on August 10, engineer and professor Victor Zappi and UBC professor of electricity and computing Sidney Fells will present Hyper Dumhead. Futuristic percussion instruments operate with virtual spheres that allow you to create and modify shapes that represent the sounds and movements of percussion instruments. The description of the new technology is as follows:

"To play an instrument, musicians can choose to load a pre-recorded sound file into a connected computer or inject live input such as vocals or guitar. Each audio source is assigned to a specific area on the screen. Changing the dimensions of the shape changes the pitch and other aspects of the music, allowing musicians to remix and layer different tracks.

 Hyperdrum heads change the way composers create new pieces. It's just one of the new generation interfaces that you can. Will this be the next important item for computer-based composition?
