How to play Odyssey?
The start button triggers a soundscape from a jungle environment and fills in a jazz piece in about 10 seconds. But, you can also press the buttons named ‘Dog’, ‘Cat’, ‘Chicken’ or ‘Elephant’ to play their sounds at any time. Infact, there is no any particular sequence of pressing the buttons. So you can actually experiment with a permutation of 5x5! i.e. in 600 unique ways. However, you can repeat it as many times as you like 😜.
Routing of Different Audio Nodes
The application is built upon ‘example 3’ presented in the first and the third day of the Audio Programming workshop called ‘play sound’ and ‘delay node’ respectively. All of the sounds have been individually routed following the figure above except for the environment sound and the jazz piece, which have been directly sent to the output without delay or any kind of envelope.
Learning from the individual mini-project
I wish to make my Odyssey a bit more immersive by applying some binaural/ambisonic techniques and adding varieties of soundscape. Besides, to make it more interactive, features like mouse interaction can be applied that we exercised during Day 1 of the Audio Programming Workshop in ‘example 6’ called the ‘Mouse Interaction’. And ofcourse it would be intresting to add some fancy looking stuffs incorporating CSS.
