(Current) Thesis Abstract

Networked Music Cultures: An embodied approach to interaction, place, and participation
(10-17-2011)

Intention
This thesis seeks to recognize new forms of participation and collective experience at the fusion of architecture and interaction design through a musical interface for listening and composing. It looks at a series of ideas from the perspectives of art, computer science, philosophy, architecture, and music culture (both listening and composing). These ideas fall under the following terms: embodied information and spimes, tangible computing, embodied interaction, place, participation and community. The embodiment of digital information manifested as a tangible interface leads to an approach of embodied interaction. This type of interaction can establish a new sense of place imbued with the potential for participation which relates directly to a collective experience of community.
