Drawing Restraints

Work for drawing tablet, joystick and custom software.  (2011)

"Drawing Restraints" is an étude consisting of a series of small vignettes, which explore the musical possibilities using gestures associated with drawing.  The score consists of synthesis parameters and drawn gestures, which are suggested for each vignette.  The performer plays the music by setting the parameters and interpreting the figures using a tablet interface.

My instrument design was inspired by this paper:

"The importance of parameter mapping in electronic
instrument design" (Hunt, Wanderley, and Paradis, 2002)
