The Viblotar

The Viblotar is a digital musical instrument (DMI) which was created to evaluate a number of hypotheses regarding the design of DMI’s. Having performed some experiments to examine the suitability of certain sensors for specific tasks in a digital musical instrument, the Viblotar was created to test the results of these experiments. The Viblotar also provided the opportunity to examine the usefullness of tactile feedback and embedded audio production in a digital musical instrument.
