Point and whatever

What could be handier for today’s electronic musician?

This is yet another Kickstarter that’s drawn my attention; I have no discernible musical talent, or so I’ve always believed, but just the idea of this puts me in Rapt Fascination Mode.

Of course, if I were a musician:

Most of us on our small team are musicians who are tired of being stuck behind computer screens, keyboards, faders, knobs, and buttons to make our music. We feel there could be a better way that is more like the experiences we have with traditional instruments: using the dexterity and mobility of the human body.

And, as Roberta X notes, “The UI options are huge.

    I’m a glover, not a fighter.

    At first I thought of the theremin, but wow, the implications of that system are amazing. Hope it is funded. It will be amazing to see what other musicians do with it.

    Some of the bigger backers have been promised actual prototypes before mass production begins — again, provided that it’s funded. I have every reason to think it will be, especially since minimum donation is a mere £1.

    I know a number of musicians, and I can see people doing things with this that the originators would never have dreamed of. As Roberta X noted, the UI options are indeed huge. A lot depends on who writes the software, though.

    Will bands of the future include a glover as well as more traditional instruments?

    I think I will have to back this too.

    The Mi.Mu glove looks like it might be fun to play with. It’s a pity I don’t have $ 4,000 to spare for “double glover” status at this time.
