Kinesynth: Patching, Modulating, and Mixing a Hybrid Kinesthetic Synthesizer.
by Don Derek Haddad & Joe Paradiso


This paper introduces the Kinesynth, a hybrid kinesthetic synthesizer that uses the human body as both an analog mixer and as a modulator using a combination of capacitive sensing in "transmit" mode and skin conductance. This is achieved when the body, through the skin, relays signals from control & audio sources to the inputs of the instrument. These signals can be harnessed from the environment, from within the Kinesynth’s internal synthesizer, or from external instrument, making the Kinesynth a mediator between the body and the environment.
