Abstract

Most of the digital musical instruments developed so far were specifically designed for music performances and the interfaces are disruptive. They are not generally available and some of them were made with expensive technologies, making them inaccessible to general users. This paper presents an attempt to make use of Wii Controller(or Wiimote), a low cost and readily available game controller developed by Nintendo to develop an interactive music performance system on PC platform. It employs analytical techniques to study the motion data captured, recognizes and maps the detected gestures meaningful and interesting to music performance.
