Create music and graphic animation with expressive gestures, mold sonic landscapes by plowing through tapioca beads with the Dirty Tangible Interfaces!
DIRTI is installed at the 14th International Conference on
New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME)
30 June – 4 July 2014
New Academic Building, 1st floor Mezzanine, Goldsmiths, University of London.
DIRTI are physical controllers based on the interaction with real-world granular materials in which users get their hands to play and sculpt dunes and canyons, move a handful or just one tiny grain.
The infinite, natural nuances of the tapioca are amazing for interaction with computers. Scanning for density or movement of those materials allows, in this installation, to connect their sophisticated reality with real-time audio–graphic synthesis software in an inherently collaborative, expressive, and dynamic experience.
