Sonigraphical Instruments From FMOL to the reacTable*

Title Sonigraphical Instruments From FMOL to the reacTable*
Publication Type Conference Paper
Year of Publication 2003
Authors Jordà, S.
Abstract This paper first introduces two previous software-based music instruments designed by the author, and analyses the crucial importance of the visual feedback introduced by their interfaces. A quick taxonomy and analysis of the visual components in current trends of interactive music software is then proposed, before introducing the reacTable*, a new project that is currently under development. The reacTable* is a collaborative music instrument, aimed both at novices and advanced musicians, which employs computer vision and tangible interfaces technologies, and pushes further the visual feedback interface ideas and techniques aforementioned.
