Unnecessary constraints: a challenge to some assumptions of digital musical instrument design

Linson, Adam (2011). Unnecessary constraints: a challenge to some assumptions of digital musical instrument design. In: International Computer Music Conference 2011, 31 Jul - 5 Aug 2011, University of Huddersfield, UK.

Abstract

The enormous range of possibilities for digital musical instrument (DMI) design is often limited by the adoption of unnecessary conceptual constraints. When considered in relation to DMIs, a careful analysis of the underlying concepts makes it possible to reject certain assumptions and thereby to expand the current range of acceptable possibilities for future designs.
