Esquis'Sons! is a sound sketch tool built as a parametric interface using Grasshopper plug-in in order to link Rhinoceros (3D space modelisation ) Max MSP (3D sound creation)
Esquis'Sons! is at the interface between Rhino and Max / MSP and gives the possibility to hear sound scenes generated from a digital model of space in 3 dimensions.
Esquis’Sons is also a tool that explores in 6 sustainable neighbourhoods in Europe (Germany, Spain, France and Sweden) the sound qualities of intermediate spaces located on the facades of building like balconies, loggias, terraces and corridors-passageways (BLTCP). A cross analysis of the physical dimensions of the built space, of the sound environment and of the user’s perceptions allows to describe the minimum conditions of existence of these remarkable sound situations.
