Abstract: In recent decades, the sonic capabilities of digital musical instruments have significantly increased and today musicians confront a very high dimensional control space for interacting with these complex devices. The exploitation of the musical potential represents a significant challenge, as can be appreciated by surveying the proliferation of novel interfaces and techniques to map the performer gesture to instrument controls. Body gesture and in particular hand interaction have intrinsic limits on the number of instrument parameters that can be controlled simultaneously. This thesis proposes an approach in which gestures derived from the vocal timbre are used to extend common musical interfaces, providing an additional control layer for any sound synthesis or processing device. The software system embodying the techniques described in this thesis provides a novel end-to-end solution to implement ad hoc vocal interfaces, engendering new paradigms in musical performances that better exploit creativity and virtuosity.
