The aim of the research is to create a software musical instrument that allows for an aware exploration of the self, through self-reflection in music. The investigation is interdisciplinary and operates across the fields of musicology, software development and composition.
The study focuses on specific logics of compatibility between human agents and technology. These are then implemented, at the design stage, in a software tool. Finally, the piece of software is tested within art projects to validate the implementations or to correct the theoretical assumptions and, therefore, to further improve the framework. This software musical instrument is VIVO (Video Interactive Vst Orchestra).
This paper illustrates the main features of VIVO, the theories behind the implementations and the evidence that was gathered from tests within two specific art projects.
