The Squiggle: A Digital Musical Instrument

  title={The Squiggle: A Digital Musical Instrument},
  author={Brian Sheehan},
This paper discusses some of the issues pertaining to the design of digital musical instruments that are to effectively fill the role of traditional instruments (i.e. those based on physical sound production mechanisms). The design and implementation of a musical instrument that addresses some of these issues, using scanned synthesis coupled to a “smart” physical system, is described.
