Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

In this paper, we describe a new MIDI controller, the LightPipes. The Light Pipes are a series of pipes that respond toincident light. The paper will discuss the design of theinstrument, and the prototype we built. A piece was composedfor the instrument using algorithms designed in Pure Data.
