ANTracks 2.0 --- Generative Music on Multiple Multitouch Devices Categories and Subject Descriptors

Björn Wöldecke, Christian Geiger, Holger Reckter, and Florian Schulz

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

Abstract:

In this paper we describe work in progress on generative music generation on multi-touch devices. Our goal is to create a musical application framework for multiple casual users that use state of the art multitouch devices. We choose the metaphor of ants moving on a hexagonal grid to interact with a pitch pattern. The set of devices used includes a custom built multitouch table and a number of iPhones to jointly create musical expressions.
