RE: laptops and performance

 Seems that Midi controllers (or other controllers) allow the computer to
'sit there crunching numbers'  while the performer moves around or sets
his/her hair on fire or whatever.

Foot controllers, data goves, sensors, faders , eventually control surfaces
like the Microsoft Surface,  or perhaps floor sensors like disco floors,
would allow for some intersting performances  - whether the computer is a
laptop or rack mount.

I agree; that's the central challenge with digital instruments from my
opinion, as amazing as they are at doing things _exactly_ how do you take
that energy from the crowd and turn it back around into more energetic
playing?  click harder?
Still frustrated that there's no midi controller for tuba...
