Abstract or description

This paper will explore mimetic principles relevant for music performance and instrument design. It will describe elements important for understanding basic interaction between visual, sounding and gestural aspects of experiencing instrument performance and illustrate how music controllers may be enhanced through devising specific design concepts based on mimetic theory.
Example instruments designed according to these principles will be presented, specifically the BazerBow and its various prototypes.
