Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The Deckle Group1 is an ensemble that designs, builds and performs on electroacoustic drawing boards. These draw-ing surfaces are augmented with Satellite CCRMA Beagle-Boards and Arduinos2.[1] Piezo microphones are used in conjunction with other sensors to produce sounds that are coupled tightly to mark-making gestures. Position tracking is achieved with infra-red object tracking, conductive fabric and a magnetometer.
