AbstractGestures are an integral part of our daily life for communication, expression and scientific research. This work deals with the task of implementation of a real-time sound synthesis interface for artistic purposes, based on gesture recognition and trajectory tracking techniques. Gesture recognition is being carried out using Hidden Markov Models and Gaussian Observations. We define a "gestural vocabulary" that consists of three different shapes which after evaluation are assigned to a specific sound using explicit mapping strategies.
