The fluid piano

Watching this video made me think of the way that electrodes in a cochlear implant are “tuned” to particular input bands individually for each user – although with many fewer notes available. This process is called mapping, and each CI user user gets a unique map made by an audiologist.

It would be interesting to give some of this control over to the listener in certain situations.  If a certain piece of music sounded really ‘wrong’ with their normal map, it might be possible for the user to come up with a specialised map on the spot (and then go back to their normal map) using some kind of simple graphic equaliser type interface…
