Digital technology occupies a niche position within the European concert music tradition. It is rarely taught as part of instrumental curricula and its presence in the music-making process is often a source of anxiety and frustration, raising questions of purpose, validity, integrity and authenticity.

This talk will explore these issues through a series of practical examples with particular attention to the competing requirements of ease-of-use and musical expressiveness. Bringing together ideas from Activity-Centred Design, psychological theories of ‘flow’ and Small’s concept of Musicking, Music-Centred Design will be presented as a transformative approach to enhancing musical experience through technology.
