Abstract:

This thesis explores the challenges of designing reliable and robust digital musical instruments (DMIs) for long-term use. Techniques and frameworks from other fields of engineering such as systems and reliability engineering are examined for their suitability in a Music Technology con- text. The concept of Practice Interruption Rate is discussed as a way to analyse DMI reliability and availability. A systems engineering framework is used to design the T-Stick 5GW, the fifth generation of the T-Stick a gestural controller designed in the mid-2000s by Joe Malloch and Marcelo Wanderley. The T-Stick 5GW is evaluated agaisnt a series of technical metrics and potential design improvements are discussed. Finally, potential applications to other projects are summarised.
