Playing with Dynamic Sound

Brown, Andrew (2004) Playing with Dynamic Sound. In Edmonds, Ernest & Gibson, Ross (Eds.) Interaction: System, Practice, Theory, 16-19 November 2004, Sydney, Australia.


Physical musical instruments have always been dynamic systems designed to operate within chosen constraints. This paper reports on the interaction design of a new digital musical instrument that uses dynamic stochastic synthesis and how performance requirements have directed the development of an appropriate interface that balances the systems emergent behaviour with sufficient real-time predicability for live musical performance. In the process issues and concepts related to performative interaction are discussed, and a design process leading to effective interaction is outlined.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
