The Vocal Augmentation and Manipulation Prosthesis (VAMP) is a gesture-based, wearable controller for live-time vocal performance. This controller allows a singer to capture and manipulate single notes that she sings, using a gestural vocabulary developed from that of choral conducting. By drawing from a familiar gestural vocabulary, this controller and the associated mappings can be more intuitive to both performer and audience. This instrument was inspired by the character of Nicholas in Death and the Powers.
