Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This is a experimental report about an application with EMG sensing. I have developed some generation of EMG sensors, and have used them as new interfaces for musical expression. As a next step, I tested to recognize gestures of palm with 4-channel EMG sensor using 200band FFT analysis (realtime pattern matching). Just now I develop slight algorithm called "Lissajous Analysis" and got better result to recognize gestures of palm with 8-channel EMG sensor using realtime pattern matching. The key point is the visual biofeedback of the system. All subjects generate different parameters with gestures of the palm, there was not “general” rule of EMG gesture. Each subject has special parameter patterns compared to the whole subjects, and I showed the score of the special parameters to the subject with growing bar-graph in real time. The subject did not know the meaning of each control about parameters, but the score grew better by trying to relax and/or make tension unconsciously.
