In this paper, the author explores the nature of engagement, the point of performance that occurs when a human being engages with a computer-based instrument. He gives a particular focus to the embodiment of gesture as it relates to the nature of the instrument. He also presents his conceptual model of Dynamic Orchestration, which draws heavily on Trevor Wishart's concept of Dynamic Morphology, and Denis Smalley's Spectromorphology.
