Betreff: [ak-discourse] Musical Haptics open access book available online

We are pleased to announce Musical Haptics, a new open access book which introduces an emerging field that brings together engineering, human-computer interaction, applied psychology, musical aesthetics, and music performance. The volume is published in the Springer Series on Touch and Haptic Systems, and is now available online: https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-319-58316-7.

Divided into two parts, part I examines the tactile aspects of music performance and perception, discussing how they affect user experience and performance in terms of usability, functionality and perceived quality of musical instruments. Part II presents engineering, computational, and design approaches and guidelines that have been applied to render and exploit haptic feedback in digital musical interfaces.

Musical Haptics is intended for haptic engineers, researchers in human-computer interaction, music psychologists, interaction designers, musical instrument designers, and musicians who, for example, would like to gain insight into the haptic exchange between musicians and their instruments, its relevance for user experience, quality perception and musical performance, as well as practical guidelines for the use of haptic feedback in musical devices and other human-computer interfaces.
