While there is considerable work on network and system level metrics related to Network Music Performance (NMP), assessing the Quality of Musician’s Experience (QoME) in NMP sessions must also take into account the emotional and psychological aspects of the participants. We propose a research framework that integrates both subjective and objective aspects of musicians’ experience by explicitly considering the psychological state and profile of each musician, the environment acoustic variables, and the performance of the network as the key dimensions that impact QoME. We will use the proposed framework to drive empirical studies designed to explore the QoME of musicians performing musical pieces over the Internet; this paper is a first step in this direction.
