Ten Years of Tablet Musical Interfaces at CNMAT

(Zbyszyński, Michael, Matthew Wright, Ali Momeni, and Daniel Cullen: NIME New York 2007)


We summarize a decade of musical projects and research employing Wacom digitizing tablets as musical controllers, discussing general implementation schemes using Max/MSP and OpenSoundControl, and specific implementations in musical improvisation,    interactive    sound    installation,    interactive multimedia performance, and as a compositional assistant. We examine two-handed sensing strategies and schemes for gestural mapping.
