In this paper, we discuss the use of the clothesline as a metaphor for designing a musical interface called Airer Choir. This interactive installation is based on the function of an ordinary object that is not a traditional instrument, and hanging articles of clothing is literally the gesture to use the interface. Based on this metaphor, a musical interface with high transparency was designed. Using the metaphor, we explored the possibilities for recognizing of input gestures and creating sonic events by mapping data to sound. Thus, four different types of Airer Choir were developed. By classifying the interfaces, we concluded that various musical expressions are possible by using the same metaphor.
