Notesaaz: A New Controller and Performance Idiom


Notesaaz is both a new physical interface meant for musical performance and a proposal for a three-stage process where the controller is used to navigate within a graphical score that on its turn controls the sound generation. It can be seen as a dynamic and understandable way of using dynamic mapping between the sensor input and the sound generation. Furthermore by presenting the graphical score to both the performer and the audience a new engagement of the audience can be established.
