We are trying to shift the focus more towards creative aspects of interaction in both technology development and sound creation. In participatory sound art, the roles of technology creator, composer, performer, and spectator are…

Interactive Composing: An Overview
The design for a sequencer-programmable analog synthesis system made possible the techniques that led to several compositions, in particular Ideas of Movement at Bolton Landing (1971) (Chadabe 1972), which involved the control of timbre and rhythm interactively with automated controls generated by sequencers.
Auracle: a voice-controlled, networked sound instrument
The historical background of the Auracle project is discussed, beginning with Neuhaus' ‘virtual aural spaces’ in the 1960s and relating them to Barbosa's conception of ‘shared sonic environments’.
Creative collaboration between audiences and musicians in Flock
The project's connection to previous work in large-audience creativity and multi-player gaming is discussed, and the conception, design and implementation of its computer vision system, real-time notation architecture and collaborative structure are outlined.
