History

Two years after the project began, Sergi Jordà, Martin Kaltenbrunner, Günter Geiger and Marcos Alonso premiered their creation in a concert in 2005, but the instrument got known to a wider audience when the team released three demonstration videos on YouTube in late 2006. These three videos have been watched by more than four million people, including eminent musicians such as Icelandic songstress Björk, who successfully incorporated the Reactable on her last 18-months world tour “Volta”.

In parallel, between 2006 and 2009, the Reactable team gave more than 230 presentations and concerts in 30 countries, turning it into one of the most worldwide acclaimed new musical instruments of the 21st century. Declared the Hot Instrument of the Year by the Rolling Stone Magazine (2007), the Reactable has received many prestigious international awards such as the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica for Digital Musics (2008), two D&AD Yellow Pencil Awards (2008), the MIDEM Hottest Music Biz Start- Up Award (2008) or the Ciutat de Barcelona (2007).
