This research project describes the research and
building of an ergonomically designed electric guitar that extends the capabilities for composition and performance on guitar by integrating sensors in to the construction of the
instrument. The Mistry-­‐hyper-­‐guitar integrates and extends traditional playing techniques. The instrument controls physically
modelled sounds, triggers samplers and creates
controller messages for sound and effects manipulation utilising sensor technology ergonomically positioned around the guitar body.
The shape of the body is designed to encourage
good posture and correct positioning of both the
left and right hands in order to promote comfort
and ease of playing both the strings and sensors
during performance.

I will examine and describe the development of the
instrument and the techniques required to play the
instrument. The creative portfolio will comprise
a 25-­‐minute composition created to demonstrate
the capabilities of the instrument.
