 Abstract: The availability of electronic audio synthesizers has led to the development of many novel control interfaces for music synthesis. The importance of the human hand as a communication channel makes it a natural candidate for such a control interface. In this paper I present HandSonor, a novel non-contact and fully customizable control interface that uses the motion of the hand for music synthesis. HandSonor uses images from multiple cameras to track the realtime, articulated 3D motion of the hand without using markers or gloves. I frame the problem of transforming hand motion into music as a parameter mapping problem for a range of instruments. I have built a graphical user interface (GUI) to allow users to dynamically select instruments and map the corresponding parameters to the motion of the hand. I present results of hand motion tracking, parameter mapping and realtime audio synthesis which show that users can play music using HandSonor.
