|Abstract: ||Cyber Composer generates music according to hand motions of the users. This
system can be said to be a new kind of music instrument or a cyber instrument,
because no actual instruments are involved during the course of music creation.
Many music theories are behind the scene so that the users do not have to worry
about the music theories. What they need to do is just to wear a pair of gloves and
move around, beautiful music will be generated according to their hand motions.
Therefore, this system is suitable for both musicians and music laymen. Cyber
Composer can be used in fields of performance, composing, entertainment, education
as well as psychotherapy.
Since the mappings of the hand motions and gesture to musical expressions are
designed as intuitive as possible, the users can learn easily and quickly. Even those
who do not have music background can create music with ease. Moreover, there is no
real music instruments involved. Therefore, it is suitable for professional performance,
music creation and also entertainment.
This project can be involved in psychotherapy as well. Psychologists can measure
emotions, intensions, and reactions of the patients when they are using the Cyber
Composer. With these recorded and annotated data, the psychologists can investigate
the thinking and logics of the patients.|
