Dear list,

(apologies for cross-posting)

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:

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 Hapticsis 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.
