A Literature Review of Interactive Conducting Systems: 1970-2015

Inspired by expressive gestures of conductors, research in
designing interactive conducting systems has explored numerous
interaction techniques. The consequence of such
research has substantially impacted the design of more natural,
expressive, and intuitive interfaces for communicating
with computers. With the growth of whole-body interaction
systems using motion-capture sensors, we retraced
the history of interactive conducting systems to interpret
and exploit the full potential of expressivity in the movement.
We focused on 55 papers, published from 1970 to
2015, that directed this history. We examined each system
using four categories: interface(hardware), gestures(features),
computational methods, and output parameters. We then
conducted a thematic analysis, discussing how insights have
inspired researchers to design a better user experience, improving
naturalness, expressiveness and intuitiveness in interfaces
over four decades.
