Abstract

This paper presents the results of user interaction with two
explorative music environments (sound system A and B) that
were inspired from the Banda Linda music tradition in two
different ways. The sound systems adapted to how a team of
two players improvised and made a melody together in an
interleaved fashion: Systems A and B used a fuzzy logic
algorithm and pattern recognition to respond with modifications
of a background rhythms. In an experiment with a pen tablet
interface as the music instrument, users aged 10-13 were to tap
tones and continue each other’s melody. The sound systems
rewarded users sonically, if they managed to add tones to their
mutual melody in a rapid turn taking manner with rhythmical
patterns. Videos of experiment sessions show that user teams
contributed to a melody in ways that resemble conversation.
Interaction data show that each sound system made player
teams play in different ways, but players in general had a hard
time adjusting to a non-Western music tradition. The paper
concludes with a comparison and evaluation of the two sound
systems. Finally it proposes a new approach to the design of
collaborative and shared music environments that is based on
”listening applications”.
