This describes the goals of the Laboratório de Interfaces Gestuais (LIGA) at the Interdisciplinary Nucleus for Sound Studies (NICS-UNICAMP). The aim of LIGA is to build MIDI controllers using digital circuits and various transducers, and to create graphic interfaces for interactive compositional purposes. Three prototypes are presented: two new graphic interfaces developed for MS-Windows Environment and a glove interface which uses the movement of lhe hands and wrists to produce MIDI events.
