Abstract

This paper introduces a system for improvisational musical expression that enables all users, novice and experienced, to perform intuitively and expressively. Users can generate musically consistent results through intuitive action, inputting rhythm in a decent tempo. We demonstrate novel mapping ways that reflect user's input information more interactively and effectively in generating the music. We also present various input devices that allow users more creative liberty.
