  1. This paper presents an enhanced sonic data communication method using TAPIR (Theoretically Audible, but Practically Inaudible Range: frequencies above 18kHz) sound and a software toolkit as its implementation. Using inaudible sound as a data medium,…
  2. Over the past few decades, there has been an increasing number of musical instruments and works of sound art that incorporate robotics and mechatronics. This paper proposes a new approach in classification of such works and focuses on those whose…
  3. This paper presents the Talking Guitar, an electric guitar augmented with a system which tracks the position of the headstock in real time and uses that data to control the parameters of a formant-filtering effect which impresses upon the guitar…
  4. This paper describes the theoretical underpinnings, design, and development of a hyper--instrumental performance system driven by gestural data obtained from an electric guitar. The system combines a multichannel audio feed from the guitar (which is…
  5. Effective software interaction design must consider all of the capabilities and limitations of the platform for which it is developed. To this end, we propose a new model for computer music system design on touchscreen devices, combining both…
  6. In this paper, the authors introduce a stand-alone synthesizer, ``B.O.M.B. -- Beat Of Magic Box --" for electronic music sessions and live performances. ``B.O.M.B." has a wireless communication system that synchronizes musical scale and tempo (BPM)…
  7. This paper explores the challenge of achieving nuanced control and physical engagement with gestural interfaces in performance. Performances with a prototype gestural performance system, Gestate, provide the basis for insights into the application…
  8. In our current era, where smartphones are commonplace and buzzwords like ``the internet of things," ``wearable tech," and ``augmented reality" are ubiquitous, translating performance gestures into data and intuitively mapping it to control…
  9. What do new possibilities for music and art making look like in a world in which the biological and mechanical are increasingly entangled? Can a contrived environment envelope the senses to the point that one feel fully immersed in it? It was with…
  10. In this paper an emotionally justified approach for controlling sound with physiology is presented. Measurements of listeners' physiology, while they are listening to recorded music of their own choosing, are used to create a regression model that…
  11. We propose a new musical interface, TrAP (TRace-A-Phrase) for generating phrases of Hindustani Classical Music (HCM). In this system the user traces melodic phrases on a tablet interface to create phrases in a raga. We begin by analyzing tracings…
  12. In this paper we expose the need to go beyond the composer/performer model of electronic instrument design and programming to encourage the transmission of compositions and the creation of a repertory via notation of repeatable performance practice.…
  13. Networked musical performance - using networks of computers for live performance of electronic music - has evolved over a number of decades but has tended to rely upon customized and highly specialized software designed specifically for particular…
  14. This paper presents a method for locating the position of a strike on an acoustic drumhead. Near-field optical sensors were installed underneath the drumhead of a commercially available snare drum. By implementing time difference of arrival (TDOA)…
  15. Developing for mobile and multimodal platforms is more important now than ever, as smartphones and tablets proliferate and mobile device orchestras become commonplace. We detail NexusUI, a JavaScript framework that enables rapid prototyping and…
  16. This paper provides a rationale for choosing acoustic localisation techniques as an alternative to other principles to provide spatial positions in interactive locative audio applications (ILAA). By comparing positioning technology in existing ILAAs…
  17. The term 'gesture' has represented a buzzword in the NIME community since the beginning of its conference series. But how often is it actually used, what is it used to describe, and how does its usage here differ from its usage in other fields of…
  18. This paper introduces an extension of the Rubato Composer software's BigBang rubette module for gestural composition. The extension enables composers and improvisers to operate BigBang using the Leap Motion controller, which uses two cameras to…
  19. With the growing adoption of internet connectivity across the world, online collaboration is still a difficult and slow endeavor. Many amazing languages and tools such as SuperCollider, ChucK, and Max/MSP all facilitate networking and collaboration,…
  20. Sirens evoke images of alarm, public service, war, and forthcoming air raid. Outside of the music of Edgard Varese, sirens have rarely been framed as musical instruments. By connecting air hoses to spinning disks with evenly-spaced perforations, the…
