My main research goal is the development of novel devices for music performance. Since 1995 I have been involved in various projects related to gestural control of sound synthesis and more recently I have been involved with the international conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression as a member of its steering committee and as the chairman of the NIME-03 conference. I have also co-edited the electronic book Trends in Gestural Control of Music [Wanderley and Battier, 2000] and co-written the textbook New Digital Musical Instruments: Control and Interaction Beyond the Keyboard [Miranda and Wanderley, 2006].
