Description:

MappEMG consists of a data pipeline that uses pianists’ trunk muscle activity captured though surface electromyography (EMG) to produce a vibrotactile feedback. The main objective of the project is to make perceptible through haptic stimuli a rather non-visible dimension of pianists’ gestures: muscle activations related not to motion of body segments but to the embodiment of musical tension, a central feature of musical structure in western tonal music. We envision to use the MappEMG in the context of both live musical performances and instrumental lessons.
