    A low cost accessible sound and music control system is described (the Benemin). The interface employs an array of infrared distance measuring sensors that can be mapped to either MIDI pitches or MIDI control messages. When mapped to pitch, a user can interact with the system directly as a musical instrument. When mapped to controller messages, the system can be used as a multiparametric sound-controller. The Benemin has been designed to be inclusive such that it is aimed at users with or without specific needs. A model for testing is presented along with an indication of preliminary results.
