Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We are presenting a set of applications that have been realized with the MO modular wireless motion capture deviceand a set of software components integrated into Max/MSP.These applications, created in the context of artistic projects,music pedagogy, and research, allow for the gestural reembodiment of recorded sound and music. They demonstrate a large variety of different "playing techniques" inmusical performance using wireless motion sensor modulesin conjunction with gesture analysis and real-time audioprocessing components.
