Hybrid Plattform

In the project “Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments” (3DMIN), the conditions for the artistic success of musical instruments will be investigated. In parallel, the interdisciplinary research team will collaborate with musicians and performers on designs for various prototypes of new musical interfaces that allow musicians to realize their artistic visions for music. These prototype instruments will be explored in an artistic context, i.e., in the projects of the musicians involved, and are to be evaluated by qualitative and quantitative methods. All of the hybrid instruments’ features – from physical design, interface design, mapping, to the sound synthesis software – will be published open-source for the scientific and artistic communities. The project is supported by the Hybrid Plattform.
