Advancements in technology have made musical instruments, especially electronic instruments, accessible to the masses. As a result, music-making has become more widespread and convenient. However, the blackboxing practices of commercial Digital Musical Instruments (DMIs) have conditioned many users to produce only specific styles of music. Furthermore, as many of these commercial instruments produce sound through loudspeakers, rather than the body of the instrument, players lose the physical…

Instruments and Players: Some Thoughts on Digital Lutherie
TLDR
The aim of this paper is the foundation of a theoretical framework in which the possibility and the diversity of musical instruments, as well as the possibilities and expressive freedom of human performers, could all be evaluated.
Remutualizing the Musical Instrument: Co-Design of Synthesis Algorithms and Controllers
TLDR
Some of the issues involved with creating new expressive electronic musical instruments are looked at, and an overview of a number of recent projects in the co-design of musical controllers and computer sound synthesis algorithms are presented.
Musical Performance Practice on Sensor-based Instruments
TLDR
A personal reflection on a performance practice developed on sensor based instruments, drawn from several years of concert performance with the BioMuse, ensemble work with Sensorband, and the application of instrumental thinking to an installation and network based project: Global String.
Advancements in Actuated Musical Instruments
TLDR
The Haptic Drum, the Feedback Resonance Guitar, the Electromagnetically Prepared Piano, the Overtone Fiddle and Teleoperation with Robothands are described, along with musical examples and reflections on the emergent properties of the performance ecology that these instruments enable.
Tangible Scores: Shaping the Inherent Instrument Score
TLDR
This paper focuses on the design aspects of this new interface as well as on some of the related technical details of Tangible Scores, a new paradigm for musical instrument design with a physical configuration inspired by graphic scores.
A Framework for the Evaluation of Digital Musical Instruments
TLDR
For the field of DMI design, a much broader definition of the term “evaluation” than that typically used in human–computer interaction (HCI) is required to reflect the fact that there are a number of stakeholders involved in the design and evaluation of DMIs.
