TGarden: Wearable Instruments and Augmented Physicality


This report details work on the interdisciplinary media project TGarden. The authors discuss the challenges encountered while developing a responsive musical environment for the general public involving wearable, sensor-integrated clothing as the central interface and input d e v i c e . T h e p r o j e c t ’ s d r a m a t u r g i c a l and technical/implementation background are detailed to provide a framework for the creation of a responsive hardware and software system that reinforces a tangible relationship between the participant’s improvised movement and musical response. Finally, the authors take into consideration testing scenarios gathered from public prototypes in two European locales in 2001 to evaluate user experience of the system.
