Abstract

Based on the concepts of RoboMusic and Modular Playware, we developed a system composed of modular playware devices, which allow any user to perform music in a simple, interactive manner. The key features exploited from the Modular Playware approach are modularity, flexibility, and construction, immediate feedback to stimulate engagement, creative exploration of play activities, and in some cases activity design by end-users (e.g. DJ’s). We exemplify the approach with the development of 11 rock genres and 6 pop music pieces for modular I-BLOCKS, which are exhibited and in daily use at the Rock Me exhibition and used at several international music events in Japan and USA. A key finding is that the professional music design is essential for the development of primitives in a musical behaviourbased system and this professional aesthetics is necessary for engaging the users in the activity of assembling and coordinating these ‘professional’ musical primitives. The paper describes, explores and discusses this concept.
