I have a strong interest in creating and using new interfaces for performance, especially those that capture gesture in some manner and provide performers and
audiences new emotional and musical experiences. The interfaces make use of visual tracking, accelerometers, pitch or volume detection, and other sensors, with Max/MSP or Processing being used
for software creation. The RUBS interface uses conductive and resistive fabrics, with the performer using conductive materials on the fingers to complete the circuits and trigger or scrub through samples. The KiCASS system uses the Kinect-for-Windows with custom software
to track the coordinates of selected joints/body locations on multiple dancers.
