In this paper we describe a prototypical system for live musical performance in a virtual studio
environment. The performer stands in front of the studio camera and interacts with an infrared-laser-based
multi-touch device. The final TV image shows the performer interacting with a virtual screen which is
augmented in front of herself. To overcome the problem of the performer not seeing this virtual screen
in reality, we use a special hexagonal grid to facilitate the performer's awareness of this novel
Theremin-like virtual musical instrument.
