Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

Visual information integration in mobile music performanceis an area that has not been thoroughly explored and currentapplications are often individually designed. From camerainput to flexible output rendering, we discuss visual performance support in the context of urMus, a meta-environmentfor mobile interaction and performance development. Theuse of cameras, a set of image primitives, interactive visualcontent, projectors, and camera flashes can lead to visuallyintriguing performance possibilities.
