We present MyoSpat, an interactive system that enables performers to control sound and light projections through hand-gestures. MyoSpat is designed and developed using the Myo armband as an input device and Pure Data (Pd) as an audio-visual engine. The system is built upon human- computer interaction (HCI) principles; specifically, tan- gible computing and embodied, sonic and music interac- tion design (MiXD). This paper covers a description of the system and its audio-visual feedback design. Finally, we evaluate the system and its potential use in exploring em- bodied, sonic and music interaction principles in different multimedia contexts.
