The 8=8 music interface consists of ” a group of 4 programmers = 4 composers = 4 VJs = 4 musicians = 4 artists.” Video demonstration after the jump.
All four bring their own programming, visual and musical sensibilities to a collective instrument, the Abstract Machine Hypertable
(Thanks, Brian L)
By moving one’s hands over the surface of the Hypertable, images and sounds are generated, creating a unique opportunity for musical improvisation. 8=8 uses the Hypertable to perform singular programs/instruments in a concert=performance=demo context
