A Taxonomy Elicited by the Musical Interface Technology Design Space
Acoustic instruments such as the violin excel at translating a performer’s gestures into sound in ways that can evoke a wide range of affective qualities. They require finesse when interacting with them, producing sound and music in an extremely responsive manner. This richness of interaction is simultaneously what makes acoustic instruments so challenging to play, what makes them interesting to play for long periods of time, and what makes overcoming that difficulty so worthwhile to both performers and listeners. Such an ability to capture human complexity, intelligence, and emotion through live performance interfaces is the core of what we are interested in salvaging from acoustic instruments, and bringing into the development of advanced HCI methods through the Musical Interface Technology Design Space, MITDS.
