I am a Ph.D. candidate at Stanford's CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics).

My research activities mostly focus on the following topics:

I'm currently writing a Ph.D. dissertation on Augmenting Mobile Devices: Towards a Hybrid Lutherie.

I'm also a musician, and I have been singing (tenor), playing saxophone and piano, composing and conducting ensembles for many years.

Hybrid Lutheries

A guide on how to build mobile-device-based hybrid instruments (physical/virtual). This is basically a "high-level" version of my PhD thesis.

Faust Tutorials

A series of tutorials around the Faust programming language.

SmartKeyboard App Generator

A tool to generate musical applications on Android and iOS. This is a sub-project of the hybrid lutheries project.

Faust Physical Modeling Toolkit

A set of tools in the Faust programming language to easily implement physical models of musical instruments. This is a sub-project of the hybrid lutheries project.

Mobile 3D OpenScad Library

An OpenScad library to simplify the design of mobile device augmentations. This is a sub-project of the hybrid lutheries project.

Faust 3

An extended version of the Faust programming language algebra allowing to create multi-dimensional block diagrams.

Mobile Devices External Control

A comparison of various techniques that can be used to send real-time data to a wide range of mobile device.

FaucK

A tool to compile Faust code on the fly within the Chuck programming language.

Nuance

A device adding multi-touch force sensitivity and velocity detection to the iPad screen.

3D Printing Based Physical Modeling

A new technique to predict the acoustical properties of 3D printed resonators using a matrix of impulse responses and mode interpolation.

Driving Simulator Audio Engine

A custom audio engine for the Stanford driving simulator.

BladeAxe Series

The BladeAxe is a guitar-like controller that uses "real world" audio excitations to drive a physical model of a guitar on a laptop.

faust2android

A tool that converts a Faust code into a fully functional Android application.

faust2api

A system to generate robust and high level APIs for real time audio processing for a wide range of platforms.

Mephisto

Mephisto is an open source project. Up to 5 sensors can be plugged to it. Their output signals are digitalized and streamed as OSC messages on any WIFI network. A simple program can be used to configure it. Mephisto is compatible with apps generated by faust2android.

AnaLocos

AnaLocos is a CCRMA based orchestra of analog synthesizers. On this blog, I give technical details about my own synth (parts list, schematic, etc.).

The Chanforgnophone

The Black Box is a site based installation that allows users to create unique sounds through physical interaction.

The BlackBox

The Black Box is a site based installation that allows users to create unique sounds through physical interaction.

The Féraillophone

The Férraillophone is a "musical instrument" made of two surfaces: a compact disc and lazer disc. These surfaces can be stroke, bowed, etc. to generate an excitation that is captured by piezo sensors.

Hybrid Saxophone

A hybrid saxophone where the mouthpiece was designed on a computer and 3D printed and where the bore is a waveguide physical model.

The Faust Online Compiler

The Faust Online Compiler is a PHP/JavaScript based web application that provides a cross-platform and cross-processor programming environment for the Faust language.

The Faust-STK

The Faust-STK is a set of instruments written in the FAUST programing language.

Chant-lib

A full re-implementation of the CHANT program in OpenMusic.
