Interfaces as Music

Thor Magnusson, Enrike Hurtado Mendieta

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


ixi software is an experimental project concerned with building prototypes for musical instruments. We are interested in the computer as a workshop for building non-conventional tools for musicians, i.e. not trying to imitate or copy the tools that we know from the real world of instruments and studio technology. We currently work with open source software and try to build interesting graphical front-ends to software such as Pure Data or Supercollider, but our aim is also to distribute our applications such that everybody can use them, by making them simple and intuitive to use.
