Bown, Oliver and Ferguson, Sam

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We describe a project in which a game of lawn bowls was recreated using Distributed Interactive Audio Devices (DIADs), to create an interactive musical experience in the form of a game. This paper details the design of the underlying digital music system, some of the compositional and design considerations, and the technical challenges involved. We discuss future directions for our system and compositional method.
