Abstract or Description

We present a study that explores the affordance evoked by sound andsound-gesture mappings. In order to do this, we make use of a sensor systemwith minimal form factor in a user study that minimizes cultural associationThe present study focuses on understanding how participants describe sounds andgestures produced while playing designed sonic interaction mappings. This approach seeks to move from object-centric affordance towards investigatingembodied gestural sonic affordances.
