About

Gilberto Bernardes has a multifaceted activity as a musician, professor, and researcher in sound and music computing. He holds a Ph.D. in digital media from the University of Porto and a Master of Music, cum laude, from the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten. His research agenda focuses on sampling-based synthesis techniques and pitch spaces, whose findings have been reported in over 60 scientific publications. His artistic activity counts with regular concerts in venues with recognized merit, such as Asia Culture Center (Korea); New York University (USA); Concertgebouw (Holland); and Casa da Música (Portugal). Bernardes is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Porto and a senior researcher at INESC TEC.

Multimodal Technologies and Interaction

Abstract
Mobile handheld devices, such as smartphones and tablets, have become some of the most prominent ubiquitous terminals within the information and communication technology landscape. Their transformative power within the digital music domain changed the music ecosystem from production to distribution and consumption. Of interest here is the ever-expanding number of mobile music applications. Despite their growing popularity, their design in terms of interaction perception and control is highly arbitrary. It remains poorly addressed in related literature and lacks a clear, systematized approach. In this context, our paper aims to provide the first steps towards defining guidelines for optimal sonic interaction design practices in mobile music applications. Our design approach is informed by user data in appropriating mobile handheld devices. We conducted an experiment to learn links between control gestures and musical parameters, such as pitch, duration, and amplitude. A twofold action—reflection protocol and tool-set for evaluating the aforementioned links—are also proposed. The results collected from the experiment show statistically significant trends in pitch and duration control gesture mappings. On the other hand, amplitude appears to elicit a more diverse mapping approach, showing no definitive trend in this experiment.

Appropriating Biosensors as Embodied Control Structures in Interactive Music Systems

Abstract
We present a scoping review of biosensors appropriation as control structures in interactive music systems (IMSs). Technical and artistic dimensions promoted by transdisciplinary approaches, ranging from biomedicine to musical performance and interaction design fields, support a taxonomy for biosensor-driven IMSs. A broad catalog of 70 biosensor-driven IMSs, ranging in publication dates from 1965 to 2019, was compiled and categorized according to the proposed taxonomy. From the catalog data, we extrapolated representative historical trends, notably to critically verify our working hypothesis that biosensing technologies are expanding the array of control structures within IMSs. Observed data show that our hypothesis is consistent with the historical evolution of the biosensor-driven IMSs. From our findings, we advance future challenges for novel means of control across humans and machines that should ultimately transform the agents involved in interactive music creation to form new corporalities in extended performative settings.
