The concept of gamified interactive models and its novel extensions, such as playification, has been widely approached in order to engage users in many fields. In fields such as HCI and AI, however, these approaches were not yet employed for supporting users to create different forms of artworks, like a musical corpus. While allowing novel forms of interactivity with partially-autonomous systems, these techniques could also foster the emergence of artworks not limited to experts. Hence, in this research we introduce the concept of meta-interactivity for compositional interfaces, which extends an individual’s capabilities by the translation of an effort into a proficiency. We study how this approach can be effective through the development of novel systems that enables novices to compose coherent musical pieces through the use of imagetic elements in a virtual environment.
