Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The field of mixed-reality interface design is relatively young and in regards to music, has not been explored in great depth. Using computer vision and collision detection techniques, Freepad further explores the development of mixed-reality interfaces for music. The result is an accessible user-definable MIDI interface for anyone with a webcam, pen and paper, which outputs MIDI notes with velocity values based on the speed of the strikes on drawn pads.
