Abstract

This paper describes handwaving, a system for participatory mobile music based on accelerometer gesture recognition. The core of the system is a library that can be used to recognize and map arbitrary gestures to sound synthesizers. Such gestures can be quickly learnt by mobile phone users in order to produce sounds in a musical context. The system is implemented using web standards, so it can be used with most current smartphones without the need of installing specific software.
