I've been thinking about how to make an instrument respond to the performer. Though it could be said that a lot of DMIs are "dead", compared with physical, vibrating acoustic instruments, I think there is potential to use technology to imbed even more feedback/vibe/whatever into a performance device.

Looking through this paper on actuated instruments, I came across the Overtone Fiddle (a project I've previously heard of but had forgotten). This I think (regardless of the aesthetic of performance and design) is a good model for what I'm looking for!
