This paper proposes that the physicality of an instrument be considered an important aspect in the design of new interfaces for musical expression. The use of Laban's theory of effort in the design of new effortful interfaces, in particular looking at effort-space modulation, is investigated, and a platform for effortful interface development (named the DAMPER) is described. Finally, future work is described and further areas of research are highlighted.
