Instrumenting the Interaction: Affective and Psychophysiological Features of Live Collaborative Musical Improvisation


New technologies have led to the design of exciting interfaces for collaborative music making. However we still have very little understanding of the underlying affective and communicative processes which occur during such interactions. To address this issue, we carried out a pilot study where we collected continuous behavioural, physiological, and performance related measures from pairs of improvising drummers. This paper presents preliminary findings, which could be useful for the evaluation and design of user-centred collaborative interfaces for musical creativity and expression.
