Cube Culture: eBoard

visit the website

by Bob Gluck

The eBoard is an interactive performance instrument that includes 20 different I-CubeX sensors that control multiple sound sources and digital processing. The performer can shape the sounds by means of 'playing' the various sensors - shifting one's hand position on a combination of the four sliders on the instrument's neck, tilting its body, playing a touch pad mouse positioned on the body, bending 2 home-built antennae attached to the instrument, moving 3 knobs, striking one of three metal bars with fingers dressed in an I-CubeX TouchGlove.

From the top, moving down: Installed on neck are 4 continuous controller sliders; At the top of the body is a Glide-point touch pad mouse, 3 continuous controller knobs, 2 Bend sensors in antennae (lightly colored, pointed to the right); positioned vertically on the left are 16 channel Midi sliders, and to the right of it, 3 metal panels covering force sensing resistors, upon which I-CubeX glove is played. Not in this image: I-CubeX digitizer, with single axis accelerometer beneath; and the top of the four continuous controller sliders.It has an acoustical sound source: a 4-string "dulci-harp" amplified by a pick-up microphone; digital sound processing in Max/MSP, controlled by I-CubeX slide and turn sensors.

At present, sound sources range from physical models of acoustical instruments, to sound samples and granulation synthesis. The software interface and processing engines were created with the Max/MSP real-time interactive music programming environment.
