Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We describe research enabling the rapid creation of digital musical instruments and their publication to the Internet. This research comprises both high-level abstractions for making continuous mappings between audio, interactive, and graphical elements, as well as a centralized database for storing and accessing instruments. Published instruments run in most devices capable of running a modern web browser. Notation of instrument design is optimized for readability and expressivity.
