Abstract

The Elbow Piano distinguishes two types of piano touch: a touch with movement in the elbow joint and a touch without. A played note is first mapped to the left or right hand by visual tracking. Custom-built goniometers attached to the player's arms are used to detect the type of touch. The two different types of touches are sonified by different instrument sounds. This gives the player an increased awareness of his elbow movements, which is considered valuable for piano education. We have implemented the system and evaluated it with a group of music students.
