    Abstract

    This paper introduces a novel balance ball-shaped interface to translate human body expression to sound. Although a variety of mobile interfaces have been introduced for musical performance, most of them are small not to disturb performer's action. On the other hand the proposed interface is visible and large enough to act with human performer. All the sensors are equipped in a large balance ball which moves, rolls and deforms according to the performer's actions such as pushing and kicking.
