Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

Tingle is a new digital music controller that attempts to recapture the acoustic touch and feel, and also gives new opportunities for expressive play. Tingle resembles a pin-art toy which has been made interactive through a new sensing technology, with added haptic feedback and motion control. It pushes back, vibrates, and warps the sound through the musicians nuanced input. In this article Tingle will be discussed in combination with CataRT.
