This article presents an interface for navigating a musical parameter space. The entire combinatorial space of a ten parameter synthesiser is laid out as a two-dimensional surface on a multi-touch screen. The surface can be scrolled and zoomed using touch screen swipe and pinch gestures, reminiscent of a maps application. The user can place markers on the(More)
This paper outlines a theoretical framework for creative technology based on two contrasting processes: divergent exploration and convergent optimisation. We claim that these two cases require different gesture-to-parameter mapping properties. We present results from a user experiment that motivates this theory. The experiment was conducted using a publicly(More)
