This paper documents the early developments of a new interface for electronic percussionists. The interface is designed to allow the composition, improvisation and performance of live percussive electronic music using hand, finger, foot and head movements captured by various controllers. This paper provides a background to the field of electronic percussion, outlines the artistic motivations behind the project, and describes the technical nature of the work completed so far. This includes the development of software, the combination of existing controllers and senses, and an example mapping of movement to sound.
