Virtual Reality Musical Instruments: State of the Art, Design Principles, and Future Directions
A field overview of VRMIs from the viewpoint of the performer is presented, nine design guidelines are proposed, evaluation methods are described, case studies are analyzed, and future challenges are considered. Expand
Discrete-time modelling of musical instruments
This article describes physical modelling techniques that can be used for simulating musical instruments. The methods are closely related to digital signal processing. They discretize the system withExpand
Digital Waveguides versus Finite Difference Structures: Equivalence and Mixed Modeling
A general digital signal processing (DSP)-oriented framework where the functional equivalence of these two approaches is systematically elaborated and the conditions of building mixed models are studied. Expand
Extraction of Physical and Expressive Parameters for Model-Based Sound Synthesis of the Classical Guitar
The revision of the calibration process of a classical guitar model is described, and the parameter extraction procedure is extended to capture information about performance characteristics, such as the damping regimes, repeated plucks, vibrato characteristics, different pluck styles and dynamic variations. Expand
Sound and Music Computing: Research Trends and Some Key Issues
The field is roughly divided into three large areas related to Sound, Music, and Interaction, respectively, and within each of these, major research trends are briefly described. Expand
Blocked-based physical modeling for digital sound synthesis
This contribution presents suitable interconnection strategies that incorporate a wide range of modeling blocks and considers the automatic implementation of block-based structures. Expand
Acoustical analysis and model-based sound synthesis of the kantele.
An analysis of the sound generation principles in the kantele is presented, based on measurements and analytical formulation, and the algorithm is made efficient for real-time synthesis to simulate these features of the instrument timbre. Expand
Design and evaluation of interactive musical fruit
Positive feedback from the test subjects upholds the validity and the potential of the IMF as an interface in a museum context, however, further research is required to improve the interactive and collaborative aspects of the device, as well as the aural and visual properties ofThe IMF. Expand
The Effects of Ecological Auditory Feedback on Rhythmic Walking Interaction
The authors present a system capable of rhythmic walking interactions using auditory display that follows either detected footsteps or suggests a tempo, which is either constant or adapts to the walker, yet ecological sounds are considered more natural. Expand
Embracing First-Person Perspectives in Soma-Based Design
A set of prominent designers embarked on a research journey to explore aesthetics in movement-based design. Here we unpack one of the design sensitivities unique to our practice: a strong first perExpand
