Distributed performance systems present many challenges to the artist in managing performance information, distribution and coordination of interface to many users, and cross platform support to provide a reasonable level of interaction to the widest possible user base. Now that many features of HTML 5 are implemented, powerful browser based interfaces can(More)
Developing for mobile and multimodal platforms is more important now than ever, as smartphones and tablets proliferate and mobile device orchestras become commonplace. We detail NexusUI, a JavaScript framework that enables rapid prototyping and development of expressive multitouch electronic instrument interfaces within a browser. Extensions of this project(More)
Effective powertrain design for the emerging electric vehicle market is a complex, multidisciplinary problem. As such, engineers may often use formal decomposition-based optimisation strategies to partition the problem into more manageable subproblems and then integrate their solutions to obtain an optimal system design. Sometimes, these strategies yield(More)
Core tangibles are tangible interface elements that support common behaviors across diverse computational systems. Where prior examples have centered upon passive tagged physical artifacts, we introduce complementary approaches employing and extending mass-market computational platforms. First, we show how several common smartphone platforms can serve core(More)
Aural-of or relateing to the ear or hearing Aura-an invisible breath, emanation, or radiation AR-Augmented Reality AuRal is an environmental audio system in which individual participants form ad hoc ensembles based on geolocation and affect the overall sound of the music associated with the location that they are in. The AuRal environment binds physical(More)
Programming Music Camp is a summer outreach camp designed to teach computer programming concepts to youths through the activity of music-making. Prior experiences teaching web audio technologies to secondary school students are described. The camp curriculum is then outlined, including the class activities of live coding, instrument design , and concert(More)
