Musical Notation for Multi-Touch Interfaces


This paper explores the creation and testing of a new system for notating physical actions on a surface. This notation is conceptualized through the medium of, and initially tested on, multi-touch interfaces. Existing methods of notating movement are reviewed, followed by a detailed explanation of our notation. User trials were carried out in order to test how effective this notation was, the results of which be explained. An analysis of the collected data follows, as well as criticisms of the notation and testing process.
