In line with the efforts from the Ubiquitous Music Group, our research identified recurring patterns of interaction between humans and computing devices in existing music software and hardware. These four kinds of repeatedly implemented musical interactions are being documented in the form of interaction design patterns, providing an alternative taxonomy of interaction types, suitable for musical and computational developments in ubiquitous music research. In this paper we briefly describe the meaning of patterns in design fields. We also defend the use of interaction patterns in the design of ubiquitous music systems, and present the four proto-patterns proposed in our research. We intend with this paper to foster discussions at this 3rd Ubimus workshop, which can lead to refinement and improvement of the proposed interaction design patterns.
