Abstract : A new interface for visualizing and analyzing percussion gestures is presented, proposing enhancements of existing motion capture analysis tools. This is achieved by offering a percussion gesture analysis protocol using motion capture. A virtual character dynamic model is then designed in order to take advantage of gesture characteristics, yielding to improve gesture analysis with visualization and interaction cues of different types.
