Example text

We find that this albeit schematic framework allows us to view the roles of human motor learning, controller mapping, and generative software as an overall adaptive system (Lee and Wessel 1992). Unlike the one gesture to one acoustic event paradigm our framework allows for generative algorithms to produce complex musical structures consisting of many events. One of our central metaphors for musical control is that of driving or flying about in a space of musical processes. Gestures move through time as do the musical processes.

Moving the pen gradually from left to right at the appropriate rate results in a resynthesis with the original temporal behavior, but any other gesture results in an alteration of the original. This interface allows a performer to play more arbitrary musical material, while preserving the fine continuous structure of the original input sounds. This kind of interface has been used in live performance contexts with classical Indo-Pakistani singing (Wessel et al. 1998), trombone samples with expressive glissandi, and saxophone quartet material.
