An Emotion-Driven Interactive System



Emotion-based interactive music systems have great application
potential, namely in entertainment and healthcare. This paper describes an
installation that explores the interactive capabilities of EDME, an emotionbased
music engine we are developing. At the core of the installation there is an
affective computer system that selects appropriate music and images to express
its emotional state. The installation allows people to experience and influence
the emotional behavior of this system. We made two experiments where people
were able to ascribe emotions to the system in a natural way, relating arousal
with the amount of movement and valence with the number of presences, as
expected. The system transmitted expected emotions and gains from using both
media (music and images) to express its emotional state.
