MICON: A Music Stand for Interactive Conducting Exhibits

The MICON is an electronic music stand extending Maestro!, the latest in a series of interactive conducting exhibits that use real orchestral audio and video recordings.

The MICON uses OpenGL-based rendering to display and animate score pages with a high degree of realism. It offers three different score display formats to match the user’s level of expertise. A real-time animated visual cueing system helps users with their conducting. The MICON has been evaluated with music students.

A video showing the music stand in use. Note: This video was created using a screen capture toolkit, which somewhat degrades video quality and framerate compared to the original system.

The MICON is the diploma thesis work of Telis Hadjakos.
