In 2015-17 I designed and built the Abacus interface. It consists of
toggles, LEDs, potentiometers, button, and Arduino Teensy, all molded in thermoplastic which is
shaped around a basic mic clip. It communicates with MaxMSP via USB connection and Serial protocol.
The Abacus allows me to explore gesture and control during voice-electronics performances, and has
driven my thinking about how time and attention are directed in the performative moment.
