Bruno Zamborlin explains that the idea of using contact microphones comes from the desire to turn ordinary objects into percussive instruments:
"We wanted percussionists to take full advantage of electronic music without losing the feeling of touching a real surface. I would love to see people stop watching their tiny touchscreen all the time and start taking more advantage of what they already have around them. More artistically speaking, I find midi controllers a bit boring as they don't permit any relationship between the gesture of users, such as moving a knob, and its effect. Touching real surfaces allows users to experience haptic feedback on what they do and enhancing their relationship with the device."
