Abstract:

In this article, the author proposes a new approach to musical instrument design that addresses the variability and extent of gestural expression and movement capabilities of individual performers. The role of representation of musical performance in optimising performer-instrument compatibility is discussed. He then focuses on musical performance involving the use of the human hand
