DIVA - Virtual Orchestra
As a challenging test case, a Virtual Orchestra with
four artificial musicians
has been implemented by DIVA research group.
In the current implementation the user
interacts with the virtual musicians by showing the tempo
with a baton, like real conductors do. The animated band
obey the gestures of the conductor and at the same time the
operator (another user) can change the viewpoint. The
conductor and the audience hear the band playing in a
virtual space (e.g., a concert hall) due to the real-time
acoustic modelling and sound rendering. The
of Virtual Orchestra were in SIGGRAPH'97.
