This paper is a design report on a prototype musical controller based on fiberoptic sensing pads from Tactex Controls [8] . It will discuss elements of form factor, technical design, and tuning/sound generation systems tested while building the device I have dubbed 'the Ski'. The goal is the creation of a fine musical instrument with which a skilled performer can play music from standard repertoire as well as break sonic ground in modern forms.
