Abstract: This paper presents MixPlore, a framework for a live digital performance inspired by cocktail mixology. It aims to maximise the pleasure of mixology, presenting the cocktail as a plentiful art medium through which people can fully enjoy new synesthetic content created through the integration of bartending and musical creation. For this, we created tangible user interfaces utilising cup, tin, glass, muddler, costume display, etc. Making cocktails is followed by a performance including music composition. At the end of every repertoire, the performer presents the resulting 'sonic cocktails' to the audience.
