Neurohedron : A Nonlinear Sequencer Interface

Hayes, Ted

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The Neurohedron is a multi-modal interface for a nonlinear sequencer software model, embodied physically in a dodecahedron. The faces of the dodecahedron are both inputs and outputs, allowing the device to visualize the activity of the software model as well as convey input to it. The software model maps MIDI notes to the faces of the device, and defines and controls the behavior of the sequencer’s progression around its surface, resulting in a unique instrument for computer-based performance and composition.
