The LapSlapper is an inexpensive and low-technology percussive instrument with a digital interface. In a tactile and embodied manner it allows enhanced control and promotes expressive creativity when operating with percussive elements in digital environments. By using piezo-microphones, mounted on a pair of gloves and connected with a stereo signal to a runtime-version of a Max/MSP patch, intuitive haptic properties are achieved with simple means. The LapSlapper improves the physical feeling of playing digital rhythm instruments but the concept holds furthermore the potential to promote exploration and innovation of new, digitally founded rhythmical structures and aesthetics.
