Abstract

 

This project proposes the use of the sensory features of modern mobile phones that were previously unavailable for the wide consumer public, such as the accelerometers and the multi-touch surfaces, as an input for a musical tangible tabletop. The development of a mobile application operating simultaneously with the reactable is carried out based on a conventional wireless connection. The application is a formant voice synthesizer controlled by both the mobile device and the reactable. The proposed system seeks to give an additional degree of freedom in the musical experience and expression with this instrument and tries to take advantage of the advancing mobile technology to extend the control of the reactable and provide alternative ways of musical interaction.
