Abstract

Music is a powerful medium for the expression of emotions and feelings assumed by us from childhood; we are used to improvise rhythms and melodies, memorize and imagine harmonies and even full songs.
However, due to its complexity, for musical expression through an instrument it becomes necessary not only to master it completely, but also understand the theoretical concepts that dictate the rules that melodies have to obey.
Assuming that most people with little or no musical knowledge can sing melodies using their voice, this project tries to identify and utilize these intuitions in the design of an interactive system so that you can convey melodic ideas by changing the way the interpretation of an instrument is treated and thus offering the possibility of musical expression to anyone.
