Abstract / Description of output

New technologies have led to the design of exciting interfaces
for collaborative music making. However we still have very little understanding of the underlying affective and communicative processes that occur during such interactions. We carried out a study where we collected both self-report and continuous behavioural, and physiological measures from pairs of improvising drummers. Correlations were found between self-report scores and continuous measures. Absence of visual contact between participants was also shown to affect some of these measures. We discuss how our findings could influence the design of enhanced, collaborative interfaces for musical creativity and expression.
