Augusto Esteves will present: jamTable: Can Physical Interfaces Support the Collaboration Between Novice and Experienced Musicians? (by Augusto Esteves, Filipe Quintal and Ian Oakley) 

Abstract: This paper introduces jamTable, a system that enables the collaboration between users playing a standard musical instrument and users interacting with a tangible musical sequencer. In an introductory study both qualitative and quantitative data were collected from eight participants in two setup conditions: Musician-Musician and Novice-Musician pairs. By comparing the performance of participants in these two groups, this paper gathers relevant insights regarding the ability of a tangible musical application such as the jamTable to support musical collaborations between novice and experienced musicians – in both learning or performance activities.
