Expressive Musical Interaction on Multi-Touch Devices

Multi-touch devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs provide a wide experimental space for exploring musical interaction. While most musical instruments implemented on these devices focus on mimicking their real-world counterpart such as the piano and the guitar, we believe that alternate gestures exclusively designed for multi-touch devices can further expand the accuracy and expressiveness of touchscreen music.
