The G-Spring Controller

  title={The G-Spring Controller},
  author={Denis Lebel and Joseph W. Malloch},
This paper presents a novel digital musical instrument using an interface constructed from a large spring that offers natural kinesthetic feedback through its inherent stiffness. The design of the first prototype is described and discussed in relation to the notion of effort in musical performance. Audio feedback and distortion are introduced as a possible way to extend the musical limits of the simple interface.
