In this paper, we explore Human-Centered Interaction Design (HCID) aspects that determine the realisation and appreciation of musical works (installations, composition and performance), interfaces for sound design and musical expression, augmented instruments, sonic aspects of virtual environments (VR/AR/MR) and interactive audiovisual performances. In this first work, with the human at the centre of the design, we started sketching modes of interaction with sound that could result direct, engaging, natural and embodied in a collaborative, interactive, inclusive and diverse music environment. We define this as Human-Sound Interaction (HSI). To facilitate the exploration of HSIs, we prototyped Sound-Sculpt, a cross-modal audio, holographic projection and mid-air haptic feedback system. During an informal half-day workshop, we observed that HSIs through SoundSculpt have the potential to foster new ways of interaction with sound and to make them accessible to diverse musicians, sound artists and audience.
