MetaTravels and MetaLonsdale: iPad apps for percussive improvisation

Martin, Charles; Gardner, Henry James; Swift, Benjamin

Description

Percussionists are unique among instrumentalists in that their artistic practice is defined by an approach to interaction rather than their instruments. While percussionists are accustomed to exploring non-traditional objects to create music, these objects have yet to encompass touch-screen computing devices to any great extent. The proliferation and popularity of these devices now presents an opportunity to explore their use in combining computer-generated sound together with percussive...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractPercussionists are unique among instrumentalists in that their artistic practice is defined by an approach to interaction rather than their instruments. While percussionists are accustomed to exploring non-traditional objects to create music, these objects have yet to encompass touch-screen computing devices to any great extent. The proliferation and popularity of these devices now presents an opportunity to explore their use in combining computer-generated sound together with percussive interaction in a musical ensemble. This interactivity demonstration presents two iPad-instruments developed in collaboration with Ensemble Metatone, a group formed to explore the "infiltration" of iPad apps into a free-improvisation percussion ensemble. The apps encourage the performers' exploration through percussive gestures and use network features to support cohesive improvisation.
