Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

”Perfect Take” is a public installation out of networked acoustic instruments that let composers from all over the world exhibit their MIDI-works by means of the Internet. The primary aim of this system is to offer composers a way to have works exhibited and recorded in venues and with technologies not accessible to him/her under normal circumstances. The Secondary aim of this research is to highlight experience design as a complement to interaction design, and a shift of focus from functionality of a specific gestural controller, towards the environments, events and processes that they are part of.
