In this paper, a technique for inferring the configuration of a clapper’s hands from a hand clapping sound is described. The method was developed based on analysis of synthetic and recorded hand clap sounds, labeled with the corresponding hand configurations. A naive Bayes classifier was constructed to automatically classify the data using two different feature sets. The results indicate that the approach is applicable for inferring the hand configuration. 
Sonic Handprints: Person Identification with Hand Clapping Sounds by a Model-Based Method
TLDR
A probabilistic model-based technique for person identification based on their hand clapping sounds based on a Hidden Markov Model which uses spectral templates in its observation model, which is suitable also for interactive systems.
Recognition of Hand Clapping Sounds-The Significance of Timbre in Steve Reich ' s Clapping Music
Although hand clapping is a ubiquitous activity all over the world, and employed in a wide variety of activities, it remains an understudied topic in the field of pattern recognition. In both
A hand clap interface for sonic interaction with the computer
TLDR
Preliminary tests indicate that rather than having total control via the interface, the user negotiates with the computer to control the tempo.
BLIND UPMIX FOR APPLAUSE-LIKE SIGNALS BASED ON PERCEPTUAL PLAUSIBILITY CRITERIA
Applause is the result of many individuals rhythmically clapping their hands. Applause recordings exhibit a certain temporal, timbral and spatial structure: claps originating from a distinct
Real-Time Recognition of Percussive Sounds by a Model-Based Method
TLDR
A model-based algorithm for detection of percussive events is introduced and the results indicate that the approach is promising and applicable in design and development of interactive musical systems.
Real-Time Recognition of Percussive Sounds by aModel-BasedMethod
Interactive musical systems require real-time, low-latency, accurate, and reliable event detection and classification algorithms. In this paper, we introduce a model-based algorithm for detection of
SONIC GESTURES AS INPUT IN HUMAN-COMPUTER INTERACTION : TOWARDS A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH
While the majority of studies in sonic interaction design (SID) focuses on sound as the output modality of an interactive system, the broad scope of SID includes also the use of sound as an input
Expressive Timbre and Timing in Rhythmic Performance: Analysis of Steve Reich’s Clapping Music
Because of its minimalist construction, Steve Reich’s Clapping Music provides an ideal crucible for an examination of the role of expressive timing and expressive timbre in musical performance. Seven
ASSESSING APPLAUSE DENSITY PERCEPTION USING SYNTHESIZED LAYERED
Applause signals are the sound of many persons gathered in one place clapping their hands and are a prominent part of live music recordings. Usually, applause signals are recorded together or
Real-Time Sound Synthesis of Audience Applause
TLDR
A procedural model for synthesizing applause sounds that contains novel aspects to ensure high quality and usability is investigated, and the implementation contains meaningful parameters that allow a user to configure and change the sound to achieve a multitude of different types of applause.

TLDR
Two physics-based analysis, synthesis, and control systems for synthesizing hand clapping sounds are presented, capable of producing individual hand-claps, or mimicking the asynchronous/synchronized applause of a group of clappers.
