This paper describes the design, theoretical underpinnings and development of a hyperinstrumental performance system driven by gestural data obtained from an electric guitar. The system combines a multichannel audio feed (parsed for its pitch contour, spectral content and note inter–onset time data) with motion tracking of the performer’s larger–scale(More)
Concurrent validation procedures were employed, using a sample of African American precollege students, to determine the extent to which scale scores obtained from the first edition of the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) were appropriate for diagnostic purposes. Data analysis revealed that 2 of the 10 LASSI scales (i.e., Anxiety and Test(More)
Inclusive music activities for people with physical disabilities commonly emphasise facilitated processes [1], based both on constrained gestural capabilities, and on the simplicity of the available interfaces. Inclusive music processes employ consumer controllers, computer access tools and/or specialized digital musical instruments (DMIs). The first(More)
BACKGROUND Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a common nosocomial infection in pediatric intensive care units (ICUs). Ventilator-associated pneumonia protocols decrease the incidence of VAP; however, many components of these protocols are not feasible in all settings. This study was done in a large pediatric hospital in Nicaragua. OBJECTIVE The aim(More)
