The Game of Life
The Game of Life is a sextet for three dancers and three musicians, whose ambition is to find new performative relationships between dance and music.
The Noiseboxes are a group of standalone embedded musical instruments that are the product of ongoing research on user-centered digital musical instrument design.
The Bionic Harpist is a is a research-creation collaboration with harpist Alexandra Tibbitts. Building upon a previous work Gestural Control of Augmented Instrumental Performance, we present a new musical interface for the concert harp.

Digital musical instruments are frequently designed in research and experimental performance contexts but few are taken up into sustained use by active and professional musicians.
Gestural Control of Augmented Instrumental Performance
This research creation project explored interface design for gestural control of instrumental performance through a motion capture study and the development of new hardware and software.
Adaptive Use Musical Instrument
AUMI - the Adaptive Use Musical Instrument - is a project that founded and directed by Pauline Oliveros. AUMI is an accessible digital musical instrument designed to allow individuals of all abilities to make music.
