Tune Taps

—– In collaboration with Mike Milazzo —–

Tune Taps are a tool for tap dancers to create any sound imaginable.

Mike and I are both dancers, and we found that we had the same dream: to make music with our feet. I’ve been a tap dancer my whole life and expanding the sound of a tap shoe from metal to anything a midi program can play was a challenge I couldn’t wait to undertake.  We created TuneTaps, a system that senses our feet in the place of normal tap shoes but communicates with the computer to play the sound.
