  1. This paper describes the origin, design, and implementation of Smule's Magic Fiddle, an expressive musical instrument for the iPad. Magic Fiddle takes advantage of the physical aspects of the device to integrate game-like and pedagogical elements.…
  2. Pressure, motion, and gesture are important parameters inmusical instrument playing. Pressure sensing allows to interpret complex hidden forces, which appear during playinga musical instrument. The combination of our new sensorsetup with pattern…
  3. The continuous evolutions in the human-computer interfaces field have allowed the development of control devicesthat let have a more and more intuitive, gestural and noninvasive interaction.Such devices find a natural employment also in the…
  4. In this paper we describe a system which allows users to use their full-body for controlling in real-time the generation of an expressive audio-visual feedback. The system extracts expressive motion features from the user's full-body movements and…
  5. Black Box is a site based installation that allows users to create uniquesounds through physical interaction. The installation consists of a geodesicdome, surround sound speakers, and a custom instrument suspended from the apexof thedome. Audience…
  6. Music composition on computer is a challenging task, involving a range of data types to be managed within a single software tool. A composition typically comprises a complex arrangement of material, with many internal relationships between data in…
  7. The Electrumpet is an enhancement of a normal trumpet with a variety of electronic sensors and buttons. It is a new hybrid instrument that facilitates simultaneous acoustic and electronic playing. The normal playing skills of a trumpet player apply…
  8. This paper presents a prototypical tool for sound selection driven by users' gestures. Sound selection by gesturesis a particular case of "query by content" in multimediadatabases. Gesture-to-Sound matching is based on computing the similarity…
  9. As a 2010 Artist in Residence in Musical Research at IRCAM, Mari Kimura used the Augmented Violin to develop new compositional approaches, and new ways of creating interactive performances [1]. She contributed her empirical and historical knowledge…
  10. This paper discusses the Jam-O-Drum multi-player musical controller and its adaptation into a gaming controller interface known as the Jam-O-Whirl. The Jam-O-World project positioned these two controller devices in a dedicated projection environment…
  11. We introduce a form of networked music performance where a performer plays amobile music instrument while it is being implemented on the fly by a livecoder. This setup poses a set of challenges in performing a music instrumentwhich changes over time…
  12. Discussion of time in interactive computer music systems engineering has been largely limited to data acquisition rates and latency.Since music is an inherently time-based medium, we believe thattime plays a more important role in both the usability…
  13. Conceiving digital musical instruments might be challenging in terms of spectator accessibility. Depending on the interface and the complexity of the software used as a transition between the controller and sound, a musician performance can be…
  14. In this study artistic human-robot interaction design is introduced as a means for scientific research and artistic investigations. It serves as a methodology for situated cognitionintegrating empirical methodology and computational modeling, and is…
  15. This paper describes the development, function andperformance contexts of a digital musical instrument called"boomBox." The instrument is a wireless, orientation-awarelow-frequency, high-amplitude human motion controller forlive and sampled sound.…
  16. The rapid development of network communicationtechnologies has allowed composers to create new ways inwhich to directly engage participants in the exploration of newmusical environments. A number of distinctive aestheticapproaches to the musical…
