THE MUSIC PAINT MACHINE is an interactive music system that allows musicians to make a digital painting by playing music and by moving on a coloured (dance)mat. Unlike in many interactive music systems, the acoustic musical instrument is not replaced by an electronic controller (e.g. Wii) or by sensors on the body. It is the unity of body and musical instrument that allows the musician to control the system. The various musical parameters (e.g. volume, pitch) that are changed with the musical instrument, and the movements of the musician (e.g. turning, bending, stepping on a coloured pressure mat) are converted into visual parameters (e.g. thickness of a line, colour, transparency, drawing direction) and displayed in real time on a screen.
