This paper proposes an interactive musical application for smart phones to increase the possible exposure of music. Users can adjust the expressions of music using gestures on smart phones. Our experimental results demonstrate user satisfaction with this system. The user study also demonstrates that user preference of music pieces could be improved after playing with the system.
