Don't expect the instruments to be immediately understandable, or imagine that they are easy to play. They emerged from a creative process I cannot fully explain, and I had to learn to play them. I dont't think the two esthetics I'm distinguishing must be mutually exclusive, but the intuitve side of the equation can't reliably be willed into action. A synthesis of clarity and mood will come by grace, when it comes.
Every note of the piece is generated by my hand movements, as they are transmitted through the virtual instrument: There are no predeterminded sequences or groupings of notes; the musical content is entirely improvised, with the exception of the timbral range of the instrument.
This does not mean that I can make any arbitrary music, any more than I could with any other musical instruments. I can't get a specific chord out of the Rhythm Gimbal reliably. But I can get a feel out of a chord progression, because I can influence when chords change and how radical the change will be. This does not feel like less control to me, but rather like a different kind of control. The test of an instrument is not what it can do, but: can you become infinitely more sensitive to it as you explore and learn? A piano is like this. A good instrument has a depth that the body can learn and the mind cannot. I believe it is entirely impossible for the mind to invent such instruments.
