Responsive Music Interfaces for Performance


In this project reactive instruments for performance were developed.
Reactive instruments provide feedback for the performer thereby providing a more dynamic experience.
This is achieved through the use of haptics and robotics.
Haptics provide a feedback system to the control surface.
Robotics provides a way to actuate the instruments and their control surfaces.
This allows a highly coordinated dance between performer and the instrument.
An application for this idea is presented as a linear slide interface.
Reactive interfaces represent a dynamic way for music to be portrayed in performance.
Demoed at the NIME 2009 conference, accepted as paper.
