Through the developing of tools for analyzing the performerssonic and movement-based gestures, research into the systemperformer interaction has focused on the computer’s ability torespond to the performer. Where as such work shows interestwithin the community in developing an interaction paradigmmodeled on the player, by focusing on the perception andreasoning of the system, this research assumes that theperformer’s manner of interaction is in agreement with thiscomputational model. My study presents an alternative model ofinteraction designed for improvisatory performance centered onthe perception of the performer as understood by theories takenfrom performance practices and cognitive science.
