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.
