ScreenPlay is a unique interactive computer music system (ICMS) that draws upon various computational styles from
within the field of human–computer interaction (HCI) in music, allowing it to transcend the socially contextual
boundaries that separate different approaches to ICMS design and implementation, as well as the overarching
spheres of experimental/academic and popular electronic musics. A key aspect of ScreenPlay’s design in achieving
this is the novel inclusion of topic theory, which also enables ScreenPlay to bridge a gap spanning both time and
genre between Classical/Romantic era music and contemporary electronic music; providing new and creative
insights into the subject of topic theory and its potential for reappropriation within the sonic arts.
