Interface Gestural Interface Real-time MIDI Computer Music


The authors discuss their experience using interactive interfaces for real-time musical control. They compare three types of interface using human gesture and sound synthesis: on-screen sliders controlled by a mouse, physical sliders moved by the user’s fingers, and a multi-parametric interface which uses parameter coupling with the user’s energy. In the second part, they analyse the MIDAS system (University of York): description, example of a musical test and analysis of this test.
