She is a co-developer of the Minimally Invasive Gesture Sensing Interface (MIGSI) for trumpet: an open-source, wireless interface that captures performance data and provides real-time extended sonic and visual control for improvisation. Reid has presented and performed with MIGSI at institutions and festivals around the world including Moogfest, Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, the International Conference of New Interfaces for Musical Expression, New Media Art & Sound Summit, University of Oregon, UT Austin, and UC Irvine’s Women in Music Technology Symposium, among others.
