This project focused on theoretical and computational study of interactive systems with support for Digital Musical Interfaces (MDI). It is proposed to construct an augmented instrument that uses increased transverse flute plus extra devices (sensors) to be called the metaflauta. The objective of this research is to extend the original sound-expressive possibilities of the instrument through electronic resources capable of exploring the expressive gestures of the performer as musical potential. We propose an ecological approach of interaction, especially considering feedback mechanisms between the "agents" (human and computational) and its environment. In our proposal, each system sound generation associated with MDI will be modeled as Intelligent Agent, able to modify yourself regarding environmental behavioral states. The computational architecture of each agent will consist of a multilayer neural model, so that decisions taken by each agent are guided not only in respect of environment contingencies, but also by its own history of interaction. Tries is that the application of this model to the architecture of MDI ensure certain plasticity to it, allowing the interface adapts itself faced to behaviors extracted from the acoustical environment. We intend to use musical improvisation as an exploratory resource metaflauta, understand this also from an ecological bias in which performers and technological interfaces act as subsystems of the acoustical environment.
