Abstract

This paper proposes an alternative approach to the analysis and design of interaction in realtime performance systems. It draws on the idea that the connection between the human engagement with the interface (digital or analog) and the resultant rich media output forms a proposed experiential dimension containing both technical and somatic considerations. The proposed dimension is characterized by its materiality and is referred to by the author as the techno-somatic dimension. The author is proposing that design and analysis efforts for new interactive systems should focus on the techno-somatic dimension. That if this dimension is designed with care to produce a detailed and nuanced experience for the user, then design specifications for the interface will automatically result, and that such an interface will produce the desired materiality and actional intentionality. For the purposes of this discussion, the author will focus principally on musical interfaces.
