Haptic Sound: Expressive Control of Song Playback Using Haptics
MetadataShow full item record
Haptics devices are an excellent tool to add user feel and expression to applications. For music software they can provide realistic simulations of real world instruments, or heighten the experience of interacting with musical objects. This paper focuses on an application that uses haptics as a means of interacting with pre-recorded pieces of music allowing the user to navigate and add personal expression. Simplicity and ease of use were keys to the design so that people without any prior musical knowledge were able to create and interact with music right away.
