Abstract:

This paper describes the development of AirStick, an interface for musical expression. AirStick is played “in the air”, in a Theremin style. It is composed of an array of infrared proximity sensors, which allow the mapping of the position of any interfering obstacle inside a bi-dimensional zone. This controller sends both x and y control data to various realtime synthesis algorithms.
