The electronic Flute, conception and prototyping- S. Conforti, E. Flety, M. Malt (IRCAM)

Presented during the IRCAM Forum Workshops 2023 in Paris.

« Is it possible to preserve specific playing techniques, gestures and instrumental ergonomics when designing a fully electronic instrument?

The market for instruments and controllers of all kinds and applied research in the field of flute lack of examples that have explored profoundly this question. This research attempts to develop an instrument which, based on an actual flute, will retain all the characteristics and properties of the acoustic instrument while being an electronic controller. »
