Digital Controller

MoGMI – Mobile Gesture Mabed Musical Intrument

The Mobile Gesture Mabed Musical Intrument uses gesture input on Nokia N95 as input to MIDI instruments or directly to phone sound generator.

eShofar

eShofar1 (2001 – 2005) is held by the right hand, enclosed within an I-Cube sensor glove. Finger movements upon the body of the shofar thus control the filtering and other sound processing, that is achieved by means of a custom designed Max/MSP software interface. The sounds played on the shofar are mic’d, enhanced and transformed by means of digital sound processing. eShofar2 (2005) uses complex algorithms to create a chaotic improvisational system based on the live performed sounds of the shofar.

SPI

SPI is a real-time computer sound processing instrument, which makes no sounds itself, only processes sounds input to the instrument. It has been designed specifically, but not exclusively for improvised music. It uses a number of human interface sensors to input gestural information to the processing.
