MidiGrid: Past, Present and Future

MidiGrid is a computer-based musical instrument, primarily controlled with the computer mouse, which allows live performance of MIDI-based musical material by mapping 2-dimensional position onto musical events. Since its invention in 1987, it has gained a small, but enthusiastic, band of users, and has become the primary instrument for several people with physical disabilities. This paper reviews its development, uses, and user interface issues, and highlights the work currently in progress for its transformation into MediaGrid.
