Internal complexity for exploratory interaction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


When designing interactive sound for non-utilitarian ludic interaction, internal complexity can be a way of opening up a space for curiosity and exploration. Internal complexity should be understood as non-linear mappings between the input and the parameters they affect in the output (sound). This paper presents three different experiments which explore ways to create internal complexity with simple interfaces for curious exploration.

ConferenceSound & Music Computing Conference
Other SMC 2019 TOPICS OF INTEREST include a wide selection of topics related to acoustics, psychoacoustics, music, technology for music, audio analysis, musicology, sonification, music games, machine learning, serious games, immersive audio, sound synthesis, etc.<br/><br/>Among these topics, the theme of this year is Music and Interaction. This topic is as broad as the different ways in which a certain person (musician or not, engineer or not, artist or not...) may want to interact with music, depending on their personal interests and their specific relationship with music.<br/><br/>The interaction can be focused on music composition and creation, music performance, music data mining, the influence of music on human beings, music learning, musical instruments, new sound development, reading music, etc.<br/><br/>SMC 2019 conference will foster the presentation of new methods for any kind of musical conversation or conversation through music, human-computer interaction through the lens of sound, interaction models from objects to bio and AI systems, new interfaces for playing music, interactive content discovery and recommendation, optical music recognition, music education, music games, sonification and any other music information retrieval related technology.<br/><br/>SMC 2019 will be an interdisciplinary forum to share research, music, thoughts, needs and discoveries between musicians in a broad sense, computer science experts, music information retrieval researchers, etc. This interdisciplinary atmosphere will be the perfect place to come up with new ideas, applications and challengues to keep on working in this fantastic research topic that brings together art, technology and human perception.
