In this paper we discuss some interaction aspects deduced from the relation between musical creation and musical performance. In particular, we observe the triangulation effect in the interactive processes between traditional music instruments and digital music instruments. As a result, we propose a typology of interaction for the musical performance. The deduced classes are based upon the observation and systematization of the author work as a composer The model we propose aims to contribute towards an unifying terminology and systematization of some of the major questions that arise from the coexistence between two different paradigms (traditional and digital music instruments) in the universe of live electronic music.
