3. Kumiyo Nakakoji, Kazuhiro Jo, Yasuhiro Yamamoto, Yoshiyuki Nishinaka, Mitsuhiro Asada, Reproducing and re-experiencing the writing process in Japanese calligraphy, 2nd Annual IEEE International Workshop on Horizontal Interactive Human-Computer Systems, Tabletop 2007 Tabletop 2007 - 2nd Annual IEEE International Workshop on Horizontal Interactive Human-Computer Systems, 10.1109/TABLETOP.2007.24, 75-78, 2007.12, Japanese calligraphy is the art of brush writing where a person writes Japanese characters with a Chinese brush against a sheet of paper. We have implemented a mechanism to capture the process of producing Japanese calligraphy using MERL's DiamondTouch (DT) table. We add a very thin metal wire along the length of the brush to carry an electric signal from the writer's body through the brush tuft and ink to the table. As the brush tuft is touches a sheet of paper placed on the surface of the DT table, the ink in the tuft carries the signal from the users to DT. We capture the movement of the brush tuft to produce the visual and auditory representations of the writing process and for later replay..
4. Kazuhiro Jo, Audio interface as a device for physical computing, 2008 Audio Mostly Conference - A Conference on Interaction with Sound Proceedings of the Audio Mostly Conference - A Conference on Interaction with Sound, 123-126, 2008, In this paper, we would like to describe the employment of audio interface as a device for physical computing. We compare the audio interface with other devices and describe its characteristics. We also present examples of the employment with three different art works, Monalisa "shadow of the sound", The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA stay amplified, and AEO. We explain the implementation of each work with different physical components. Finally, we discuss some of the potential of the employment of audio interface for future implementation..
5. Kazuhiro Jo, DrawSound
A drawing instrument for sound performance, 2nd International Conference on Tangible and Embedded Interaction, TEI 2008 TEI'08 - Second International Conference on Tangible and Embedded Interaction - Conference Proceedings, 10.1145/1347390.1347405, 59-62, 2008.04, DrawSound is a drawing instrument for sound performances that combines multi-touch input technology with the expressive character of drawing. The instrument is intended to be used in two different art projects, The SINE WAVE QUARTET, and aeo. In this paper, we describe the implementation of DrawSound with three different pens and show how we design the two different sound performances. We also explain our preliminarily observations about the unique characters of DrawSound..
6. Kazuhiro Jo, Ken Furudate, Daisuke Ishida, Mizuki Noguchi, Transition of instruments in the SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA, Computers in Entertainment, 10.1145/1461999.1462004, 6, 4, 2008.12, This article discusses the transition of instruments in The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA (SWO), which is a participatory sound performance project. Its basic concept is that each participant plays a sine wave, to collectively create a sound representation. Although all SWO works use the same sound source (i.e., sine waves), each SWO work employs different instruments. The employment of various instruments results in different styles of collective sound representation. This article examines five of the instruments utilized in SWO works. In The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA The Stairway, the participants played sine waves with light-sensitive instruments as well as other instruments. In The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA stay, participants accumulated sine waves in an echoless chamber. In The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA nomadic, each participants played and exhibitied a sine wave with a Linux-installed Pod. At The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA at ZeroOne San Jose/ISEA 2006, each participant played a sine wave with a hand-held plastic egg instrument; in The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA mediate, participants extended the recursion of sine waves with eight sets of boards. In this article we discuss which elements of the instrument affect how people create collective sound representations and describe the participants' experience with the instruments..

8. Kazuhiro Jo, Adam Parkinson, Atau Tanaka, Workshopping participation in music, Organised Sound, 10.1017/S1355771813000253, 18, 3, 282-291, 2013.12, This paper presents a process-based approach to considering workshops as a route to participation in collective creative musical practice. We evoke the notion of the Music One Participates In, which focuses on a shift from the listener-as-consumer to participant-actor actively engaged in sound perception and production. We look at the range of different methods that make up the term 'workshop', as well as emergent relationships between facilitator and participant in creative do-it-yourself activities to frame our discussion of participatory music practice. We then examine the nature of participation across a range of disciplines from social and cognitive science through human computer interaction to radical and contemporary art, and identify possible contradictions in horizontal utopian organisational models. With this conceptual frame as a backdrop, we present four types of workshop that we have conducted across time at different sites with diverse groups of participants. We apply concepts from the participation literature to analyse our music workshops, and attempt to reconcile the potentially diverging agendas of facilitator and participant to arrive at a process-based view of 'workshopping'..

10. John Smith, Kazuhiro Jo, "Toru"
A game that reverses the wisdom of age using mosquito sound, 1st ACM SIGCHI Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play, CHI PLAY 2014 CHI PLAY 2014 - Proceedings of the 2014 Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play, 10.1145/2658537.2662973, 375-378, 2014.10, We propose "Toru," a game that reverses the game skills developed as a person ages using ultra-highfrequency (mosquito) sound. The game has its origin in the computer game Simon (1978), which we interpret from visual to auditory form using the mosquito sound (i.e., ultra-high-frequency sound) for its difficulty settings. Because of individual variations in hearing, the Toru game transforms its character from Mimicry (simulation) to Alea (chance), and provides an opportunity to reverse the wisdom of age (i.e., game skills advantage) developed by adults over the years..
