Abstract
The concepts of mediality and embodied music cognition are relevant theories to improve the efficiency of the design of technologically enhanced performance envir- onments. This paper discusses (i) relevant theories that may be applicable for the analysis of gestures in professional operatic singing performances, and (ii) the resulting gestural mappings that might then be used for building a vocal augmentation tool. A methodology is presented integrating narrative analysis and iterative prototyping, based on gestural and performance data. Implementation of these theories should improve the efficiency and design of vocal augmentation in theatrical contexts; increasing generalizability, dramatic integra- tion, and facilitating a more cohesive, contextualized performance. The present study demonstrates the poten- tial application of the theories of mediality and embodied music cognition in the development of technological mediators, as well as possible dynamic mappings strategies based on gesture audio interaction and the physical realization of the performer’s musical goals.
