Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

This paper reviews the existing literature on input device evaluation and design in human-computer interaction (HCI)and discusses possible applications of this knowledge to the design and evaluation of new interfaces for musical expression. Specifically, a set of musical tasks is suggested to allow the evaluation of different existing controllers.
