Introduction

Hugues Vinet

This text aims to provide a summary of the research issues linked to gesture, to the writing of musical time and to interaction as they are dealt with at IRCAM, as well as to present the contributions made by researchers, musicologists and composers on these subjects. The creation of "new instruments" associated to gesture-sensing systems and synthesis procedures raise issues on the relationships linking gesture and sound, from both a technical and stage-design point of view. Research on the writing of musical time aims to revamp the concepts and tools that formalize the temporal recording of musical events in order to surpass the current limits of interaction in real-time and to provoke a renewed confrontation between the live concert and the formal conception of a piece.
