Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

A new interface for visualizing and analyzing percussion gestures is presented, proposing enhancements of existing motion capture analysis tools. This is achieved by offering apercussion gesture analysis protocol using motion capture.A virtual character dynamic model is then designed in order to take advantage of gesture characteristics, yielding toimprove gesture analysis with visualization and interactioncues of different types.
