Stimulated Percussions

Stimulated Percussions

Abstract :

We propose Stimulated Percussions, a new method designed to beat out rhythm by controlling human bodies with percussions using electrical muscle stimulation (EMS). Numerous studies in the fields of both science and art have been carried out to expand the possibilities for untrained people to be able to play musical instruments. Especially, in some studies, EMS capable of controlling the human body is applied to play a particular musical instrument. However, these studies have focused on movements of the human body for playing one specific instrument that requires movement of the whole body. Therefore, in this study, we used EMS to evaluate the body movements associated with different muscles. Moreover, we set up individual rhythms to these body movements and discussed the instrument that could be played by using these rhythms. We believe this design method would be able to expand the possibility for support to play a musical instrument.

本研究はEMS(電気筋肉刺激)を用いて打楽器を演奏する人間の体を制御する新しい手法である。芸術や科学分野で訓練を受けていない人々が楽器を演奏できるようになる可能性を拡張するための研究はなされてきた。特に、人間の体を制御できるEMSは特定の楽器を演奏することに応用されてきた。これらの研究は体全体の動きを必要としない特定の1つの楽器を演奏するための人体の動きに焦点を当てている。本研究は、EMSを用いた時の、体の各部分の動きを評価し、リズムを刻むように信号を与え、その動きがどの楽器に適用可能かを調査した。我々は本デザイン手法が楽器演奏を助ける可能性を押し広げると信じている。
