Object Design Considerations for Tangible Musical Interfaces

Title Object Design Considerations for Tangible Musical Interfaces
Publication Type Conference Paper

Abstract In this paper we describe object design considerations for the reacTable* project , a novel tangible musical instrument, developed at the Audiovisual Institute at the Universiat Pompeu Fabra. The work presented in this paper is the result of a collaboration with the Palpable Machines Group at Media Lab Europe , which focussed on haptic design aspects of the reacTable* instrument. We present a simple haptic encoding scheme for the mapping of abstract sound synthesis objects onto tangible proxy objects.
