In this paper, the author notes that designers of new digital instruments must be careful in considering the dynamic relation between a player and an instrument, the extent to which the conceptual capabilities of the instruments suggest to their players new ways of thinking, interacting, organising, and performing new music. He presents a framework through which the possibilities and the diversity of music instruments as well as the possibilities and the expressive freedom of human music performers could be evaluated.
