Digital Musical Interactions

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic or invited talk


Digitalisation has enabled new possibilities of utilising new interfaces for musical expression. It also opens up new possibilities for new music practices to emerge, which can be viewed through surrounding technological factors. Despite technological advances, what makes our relationship with music particularly interesting is that it is inherently a socio-cultural activity, supporting a diverse range of interactions and social or individual goals. The presentation on Digital Musical Interactions will discuss the research in SOPI - Sound and Physical Interaction - research group with emerging technologies and cultural constraints behind digital musical interactions, specifically through projects that present a novel collaborative environment using mobile phones as tangible and expressive musical instruments with a spatial system and an intelligent system, that acts to maintain and deepen the musicians engagement by learning from the user behaviour while interacting with digital environments. It will further bring on discussion on new music technologies and how they are utilised in creative contexts.
