, short for mosaicing gestural surface, is a contact microphone that allows any surface to be turned into a musical instrument. You can attach it to a tree, mirror, glass or even a balloon to begin playing music on it. The microphone can assign different sounds to different gestures. The tone of the sound changes, depending on what kind of material and texture you’re playing on. For example, on a tree trunk the sound emitted is more deep and hollow, while on a window, it’s more high-pitched and tinkling.
