The ‘liberation of sound’ by means of electronics, as anticipated by Edgard Varèse (1966), amongst many others, released musical instruments and musical instrument making from the physical constraints of sound production. While this may sound naïve in light of two decades of musical games and NIME, we consider it a valid and important starting point for design and research in the NIME field. This new freedom of choice required instrument makers to explicitly reflect on questions such as: what… Expand

Figures from this paper

Gesture-sound causality from the audience’s perspective: : investigating the aesthetic experience of performances with digital musical instruments.
In contrast to their traditional, acoustic counterparts, digital musical instruments (DMIs) rarely feature a clear, causal relationship between the performer’s actions and the sounds produced. TheyExpand
Post-DMI musical Instruments
TLDR
This text points out how the authors observed both a focal shift and persisting elements in the design of contemporary digital musical instruments (DMI's). Expand
Non-Rigid Musical Interfaces: Exploring Practices, Takes, and Future Perspective
Non-rigid interfaces allow for exploring new interactive paradigms that rely on deformable input and shape change, and whose possible applications span several branches of human-computer interactionExpand

Homo restis - constructive control through modular string topologies
TLDR
A modular instrument system for musical expression consisting of multiple devices using string detection, sound synthesis and wireless communication is discussed and its use in the performance HOMO RESTIS is discussed. Expand

The Liberation of Sound
TLDR
Today with the technical means that exist and are easily adaptable, the differentiation of the various masses and different planes as well as these beams of sound, could be made discernible to the listener by means of certain acoustical arrangements. Expand

TLDR
This paper interrogates this dichotomy between the fallible-corporeal and the fixed-disembodied, activating questions both about the social fact of live performance and about the compositional practices which give rise to a sense of extended instrumentality. Expand
3DMIN - Challenges and Interventions in Design, Development and Dissemination of New Musical Instruments
TLDR
This paper presents challenges in the design, development and dissemination of electronic and digital musical instruments as they were identified within a newly established interdisciplinary research project and illustrates how the research project provides interventions and measures to the community that are related to these challenges.

An Enactive Approach to Computer Music Performance
Experimental computer music performance practices designed from an enactive view of musical perception, cognition, and motor control are described. The enactive view emphasizes the role ofExpand
Towards a Model for Instrumental Mapping in Expert Musical Interaction
TLDR
This paper reviews models of the ways in which performer instrumental actions can be linked to sound synthesis parameters and discusses a general model for instrumental mapping, by separating the mapping layer into two independent parts. Expand

TLDR
The ideas explored here are based on questioning some common assumptions in the usual conceptual models of hybrid (NIME-style) instrument design, and thinking and playing through the implications of these alternate strategies in theory and implementation, and may lead both to finding non-obvious but interesting mapping strategies which can be built into more traditionally well-controlled instruments.
