In this paper we outline the emerging field of Interactional Sound and Music which concerns itself with multi-person technologically mediated interactions primarily using audio. We present several examples of interactive systems in our group, and reflect on how they were designed and evaluated. Evaluation techniques for collective, performative, and task oriented activities are outlined and compared. We emphasise the importance of designing for awareness in these systems, and provide examples of different awareness mechanisms.
