Caballero, Ian (2016) Two novel performance pieces intended to explore musicality within gestural mapping and game-data interpretation. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

A project exploring two methods of interacting with music. As part of this project, two
performance pieces are submitted, each with their own purpose-built interfacing system.
Gestural mapping is carried out within these systems to interpret data within these
performances. These pieces are examined and evaluated and the interfaces are compared to
conventional instruments. The first piece, “Leaps”, makes use of non-tactile hand tracking
technology to derive its data. Hand gestures are mapped into musical output. The second piece, “Chess” derives musical expression from a game of chess. Data about the game is collected in real time and this is instantly mapped into sound. The pieces are discussed in detail within the following document.
