Open Source Full body movement midi controller
Upcycling iPhones 4 and/or 5 to a powerful midi-controller as new interface for musical and dance performance expression (NIME/NIMPE):
Full body movements control music instruments and effects in Ableton Live. One finger point does the trick.
The DIY-Hard- and Software developed by Martin Moser and MONSTERFRAU was an important step towards the iPhoneCostume. To enable and disable the tilt sensors' data streams, MONSTERFRAU was using a Midi-Controller aside from her body. The audience did not always understand, which movement controls what part of the sound. The finger point was missing, buttons were small and visual feedback for the tilt sensors' activity was missing.
