This paper presents a graphic interface to interpret electroacoustic music. Through an example of a multi-channel piece, the author explains how the performer controls various sound parameters such as spatialisation in live performance. The system is developed with the MAX/MSP program and can use various types of controllers (e.g., joystick, touchscreen, graphical tablet, etc.).
