This module focuses on the study of real-time interaction from two perspectives, conceptual and technological. Making music has always integrated the paradigm of rich and complex human creativity. The conceptual component of this course examines performance practices using advanced real-time technologies for interaction design and signal processing. From this perspective, the concepts of 'controller device', ‘synthesis/processing’ and 'mapping' are studied in depth. Musical context is a core focus in the class, including studying expert interaction, analyzing concepts such as playability, explorability, non-linearity, control, expressiveness and/or virtuosic interaction. The technical aspects of the course require studying and implementing both software (programming) and electronic transducers (sensor / actuator)-based designs for real-time interaction and performance. Different programming languages for signal processing and methods for interaction design are studied, as well as real-time communication protocols.
