Abstract:

When developing and setting software instruments, the way data from the gesture interfaces are correlated with the parameters required to control the synthesis, i.e. the mapping, has a decisive role in ergonomics, playability and expressiveness of a device. The authors propose an approach based on a modular software design.
In order to improve and enrich the interaction between the musician and his/her instrument, the authors propose to introduce the notion of "Dynamic Intermediate Models" (DIM) designed in a modular software architecture to complete and extend the notion of mapping functions.
In such a scheme, these modules are inserted between those dedicated to the formatting of data from interfaces and those in charge of audio-graphic synthesis and rendering.
In this paper, the general framework of the software architecture and the concept of "Dynamic Intermediate Models" will be presented and developed, based on a theoretical program to implement the DIMs based on a multidisciplinary approach taking into account the different aspects of evaluation.
