    The human supervisory control model has been used successfully for decades and in numerous contexts to describe human interaction with complex technical systems. Recently, it has been argued that supervisory control modeling can also be applied in a musical context, to describe the interaction between a conductor and an orchestra. This paper reviews a range of applications of supervisory control m... View full abstract»

  • Musings on music making and listening: supervisory control and virtual reality

    This paper offers two perspectives on the relation between music and supervisory control. The first is that music making can be viewed as a three-level hierarchy of control and feedback interactions. The top level is the composer or conductor interacting through hand and auditory signals with the musician's conscious (higher brain level) activity. The mid level is internal to the musician, the hig... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the nature of teams and teamwork in the performing arts, including symphony, chamber orchestra, chorus, and jazz, as well as musical theater, straight theatre, improv, ballet, and puppetry. The results of an interview study of performing arts leaders in these domains are reported. These results suggest an "ecology" of performance. The characteristics of this ecology strongly i...

    A common framework for studying perception and performance in both human-technology interaction and music is presented. The framework represents the cognitive challenges faced by both musicians and human operators in technological systems. In the perceptual realm, both must infer distal or covert states from proximally available information (e.g., inferring the emotional meaning of a musical compo... View full abstract»

    This paper provides a review of gestural control of sound synthesis in the context of the design and evaluation of digital musical instruments. It discusses research in various areas related to this field and equally focuses on four main topics: analysis of music performers' gestures, gestural capture technologies, real-time sound synthesis methods, and strategies for mapping gesture variables to ...

    This paper presents a framework called Music via Motion (MvM) designed for the transdomain mapping between physical movements of the performer(s) and multimedia events, translating activities from one creative domain to another-for example, from physical gesture to audio output. With a brief background of this domain and prototype designs, the paper describes a number of inter- and multidisciplina... View full abstract»

    A substantial robotic interface is proposed for collaborative work between humans and machines in a multimodal musical environment. The robotic interface is regarded as a "moving instrument" that displays the reactive motion on a stage while producing sound and music by embedded stereo speakers according to the context of the performance. In this paper, we introduce four musical platforms utilizin... View full abstract»

    Contemporary musical instrument design using computers provides nearly limitless potential for designing the mapping between gesture and sound. When designing effective and expressive musical instruments, the types of relationship between musician/player and his instrument and the aesthetics of the relationships must be considered. This paper discusses four types of relationships and their aesthet... View full abstract»

    Expression is an important aspect of music performance. It is the added value of a performance and is part of the reason that music is interesting to listen to and sounds alive. Understanding and modeling expressive content communication is important for many engineering applications in information technology. For example, in multimedia products, textual information is enriched by means of graphic... View full abstract»

    Several techniques in artificial intelligence have shown a great potential to develop useful human-computer interfaces, but it is still quite far from realizing a system of matching the human performance, especially in terms of emotion, intuition and inspiration. To overcome this shortcoming, we present a promising technique called interactive genetic algorithm (IGA), which performs optimization w... View full abstract»

    Auditory data display is an interdisciplinary field linking auditory perception research, sound engineering, data mining, and human-computer interaction in order to make semantic contents of data perceptually accessible in the form of (nonverbal) audible sound. For this goal it is important to understand the different ways in which sound can encode meaning. We discuss this issue from the perspecti... View full abstract»

    It is well known that a considerable part of the land territory of The Netherlands is below sea level, and this territory has been, in point of fact, taken back from the powerful waters of the sea. It is usually kept dry by a system of dikes, canals, and pumping stations. The height of the dikes protecting the land from the North Sea has been based upon observations of the maximum sea level height... View full abstract»
