Emic - Extended Mic-stand Interface Controller
Hewitt, Donna G. & Stevenson, Ian (2003) Emic - Extended Mic-stand Interface Controller. In Thibault, Francois (Ed.) New Interfaces for Musical Expression NIME-03, May 22-24, 2003, McGill University- Montreal, QC, Canada.
This paper describes work in progress for the development of a gestural controller interface for contemporary vocal performance and electronic processing. The paper includes a preliminary investigation of the gestures and movements of vocalists who use microphones and microphone stands. This repertoire of gestures forms the foundation of a well-practiced 'language' and social code for communication between performers and audiences and serves as a basis for alternate controller design principles. A prototype design, based on a modified microphone stand, is presented along with a discussion of possible controller mapping strategies and identification of directions for future research.
