You can see the original MIDI data on the top row, and all subsequent rows show various extracted MIDI (and later AUDIO) features.
|460 x 476 Divx5 AVI video with sound||MPEG-3 160kb/s||Divx||21MB||In this first example, we start out with 7 user-defined keyframes (depicted here as the red cones).
The red ball repeatedly passes through these using linear interpolation.
As you might expect, the motion bares no relation to the music.
|460 x 476 Divx5 AVI video with sound||MPEG-3 160kb/s||Divx||21MB||We modify the trajectory of the ball between the keyframes by changing the Tension and Continuity on a
These params are controlled by the segmentation based on vertical note density
For good measure, we also add Perlin noise to the scale of the ball to mark at each change in horizontal density. The frequency of the noise is proportional current register.
|400 x 300 Divx5 AVI video with sound||MPEG-3 160kb/s||Divx||9.3MB||In this second example, we alter a motion capture sequence. First, the end-effector positions of all the limbs are used to calculate the sum of the absolute velocities of these end-effectors.
We then match the motion at these minimums to peaks in the -spread of the notes-, using localised timewarping.
The soundtrack is at the bottom. The chosen musical feature is designated by black dots.

This time, the audio-based mean zero-crossing rate is extracted [in blue] and used to change -what we refer to as- the Scale of the motion.
This is a modified version of the Chiís EMOTE laban Scale parameter.
The intensity of the inclination of the avatarís back is associated with the mean RMS volume.
What you should look for here is:
the motion will be closer to the original one proportionally to the amount of Ďvariationsí in the music, the motion will be scaled down otherwise
Basically, The busier the music, the busier the motion
