Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We summarize a decade of musical projects and research employing Wacom digitizing tablets as musical controllers, discussing general implementation schemes using Max/MSP and OpenSoundControl, and specific implementations in musical improvisation, interactive sound installation, interactive multimedia performance, and as a compositional assistant. We examine two-handed sensing strategies and schemes for gestural mapping.
