Sonic Interaction Design

Interaction Design in Computer Music mainly deals with Sonic Interaction Design (SID), which operates on the intersection of Interaction Design and Sound and Music Computing. Besides artistically motivated questions in SID, IEM is also concerned with more fundamental research in Interaction Design. Within the context of composition and music performance, we explore ideas that can be applicable in broader domains such ubiquitous computing, natural user interfaces, multimodal interaction and mixed reality. Sonic Interaction Design is explored, addressing the potential contribution of sound to interaction designs as well as the design of interaction with sound per se. In this context we synergistically use interaction design techniques, usability evaluation and phenomenological observations  to inform the iterative interaction design loop.
