Advances in digital audio technology have had an impact on both musical performance practice and on music listening and consumption. Interaction plays a central role in both domains. In the former, interaction is centered on instrumental gesture, often requiring training and technique. In the latter, interaction tends to take place between a listener and collections of music, where the end user searches, retrieves, and organizes sequences of music titles, but ultimately does not directly manipulate sound. We present a sequence of studies that draws upon interactive musical instrument design developed in the field of New Instruments for Musical Expression (NIME) coupled with User-Centered Design (UCD) techniques to investigate the potential of sonic interaction in the context of future personal music usage scenarios.
