Utilising the XBOX JoyStick as a Musical Instrument

One way of using the XBOX360 controller to make music. This is the result of development work into using @Xbox joystick as a musical instrument. I have programmed the Xbox controller to be rotated in a circular motion. Each note blends into the other using the natural ergonomics of the joystick. This instrument can be played with minimal rotational movement eg: chin, nose, finger, elbow. The notes blend together with natural dynamics to give a drone like effects, without sudden attack. The slight crescendo and diminuendo at the end of each note (attack, etc) enables the instrument to have musical dynamics without extra MIDI programming.
