English definition

A graphic interface is any means by which one may interact with a computer through some form of graphic software. Conventionally, this is achieved through keyboard and mouse control of cursors, menus, windows, dialogue boxes and icons, but may take any imaginable form. Much work in digital signal processing (DSP), interactive instrument design, real-time performance systems and Graphic Synthesis is concerned with the design of musically appropriate and innovative graphic interfaces.
