Wave by Genki Instruments is a ring that enables the use of gestures in music creation and performance: pan sounds around, increase the volume or add reverb to your voice, all using the motion of your hand. Hit a surface to trigger samples or use the built-in buttons to start/stop a recording session. The seminar Wave -- Control Sounds with Motion discusses the inception of the project three years ago, the ongoing development process and what makes Wave a unique product.

Ólafur Bogason is the co-founder of Genki Instruments, an Icelandic company at the intersection of music, art and technology. He earned his master’s degree at McGill University and has published papers in the field of music technology.
