Focus group on collaborative music technology

Study conducted: November 2016

Activity is a semi-structured qualitative study with experts to gather perspectives and experiences on collaboration and technology in music making. As a Context Mapping exercise to gather perspectives and experiences, but also allow a space for the exploration of technology concepts beyond one’s own conceptions. For the design process, this was to sensitise the initial design phases of collaborative software to not develop down paths inspired directly from personal experience or literature. As designing for future interfaces in VR must understand the situation but look towards future scenarios of collaborative use that does not exist now. Enables us to map possible designs to user-generated features of music interaction, descriptions of creative behaviour, and technologies.
