Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

Hands On Stage, designed from a percussionist’s perspective, is a new performance interface designed for audiovisual improvisation. It comprises a custom-built table interface and a performance system programmed in two environments, SuperCollider 3 and Isadora. This paper traces the interface’s evolution over matters of relevant technology, concept, construction, system design, and its creative outcomes.
