Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The design of a Spatially Distributed Vibrotactile Actuator Array (SDVAA) for the fingertips is presented. It provides high-fidelity vibrotactile stimulation at the audio sampling rate. Prior works are discussed, and the system is demonstrated using two music compositions by the authors.
