Grid music systems provide discrete geometric methods for simplified music-making by providing spatialised input to construct patterned music on a 2D matrix layout. While they are conceptually simple, grid systems may be layered to enable complex and satisfying musical results. Grid music systems have been applied to a range of systems from small portable devices up to larger systems. In this paper we will discuss the use of grid music systems in general and present an overview of the HarmonyGrid system we have developed as a new interactive performance system. We discuss a range of issues related to the design and use of larger-scale grid- based interactive performance systems such as the HarmonyGrid.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
