Block Jam

In this musical interface, collaborators use 24 tangible blocks to control phrases and sequences.

Innovation
Tangible interface and re-configurable input device for musical applications.

Vision
As our notions of media evolve, music will no longer be confined to a linear stream, but expanded to a dynamic interactive construct, blurring traditional distinctions such as composer, performer, and audience. We aim to move music media away from the personal and push it towards the social.
