The first part discusses the musico-functional approach and the mapping of keys and sensors, the legacy of the predecessor instrument (The Hands), pitfalls along the way and possible approaches to notation for performance on the instrument. The second part addresses the practice of integrating the DMI in vocal art performance, æsthetics of vocal plurality, concepts of embodying and disembodying the voice, as well as choreographic aspects, each of which expands the field of vocal art performance.
