Abstract : Creative Symbolic Interaction brings together the advantages from the worlds of interactive real-time computing and intelligent, content-level analysis and processing, in order to enhance and humanize man-machine communication. Performers improvising along with Symbolic Interaction systems experiment a unique artistic situation where they interact with musical (and possibly multi-modal) agents which develop in their own ways while "keeping in style". Symbolic interaction aims at defining a new artificial creativity paradigm in computer music, and extends to other fields as well : The idea to bring together composition and improvisation by combining mathematical symbolic structures and cognitively inspired dynamical processes belongs to a general scheme that is likely to grow in many artistic and non-artistic domains.
