This paper presents the design and implementation of agesture control interface for a wave field synthesis system.The user’s motion is tracked by a IR-camera-based trackingsystem. The developed connecting software processes thetracker data to modify the positions of the virtual soundsources of the wave field synthesis system. Due to the mod-ular design of the software, the triggered actions of the ges-tures may easily be modified. Three elementary gestureswere designed and implemented: Select / deselect, circularmovement and radial movement. The guidelines for gesturedesign and detection are presented, and the user experiencesare discussed.
