In this talk, Patricia will discuss a physical-computing system designed to excite the strings of the piano through mechanical means according to user input, which may take various forms, ranging from midi input to sensors and sonic data derived from performance through Music Information Retrieval (MIR) techniques. Examples using first prototype of this system, presented in the Huddersfield Contemporary Music festival in November 2017, will be shown, in addition to the projected design and implementation of future versions, including some detailing of the software environments and hardware which they will employ. These developments will be contextualised by related examples in Patricia's interactive instrument design practice in order to highlight some of the problematics which this system addresses in the area of interactive electronics in composed and improvised musical settings, and the needs of artists in these communities, ranging from specialised performers and composers of contemporary music to amateur musicians.
