Description
Abstract:

This paper documents the first developmental phase of an interface that enables the performance of live music using gestures and body movements. The work included focuses on the first step of this project: the composition and performance of live music using hand gestures captured using a single data glove. The paper provides a background to the field, the aim of the project and a technical description of the work completed so far. This includes the development of a robust posture vocabulary, an artificial neural networkbased posture identification process and a state-based system to map identified postures onto a set of performance processes. The paper is closed with qualitative usage observations and a projection of future plans.
