On Tuesday September 20th at 5PM EDT, Create Digital Music’s Peter Kirn will join Reactable creator Martin Kaltenbrunner to present a live webcast featuring a demo of Reactable Live and a discussion on music creation tools. RSVP to attend in person. Space is limited. If you can’t make it, please tune in here at 5PM, where we will be streaming the workshop live.
Peter and Martin will be speaking at the Austrian Cultural Forum on Sunday and they are eager to bring this discussion to Dubspot NYC on Tuesday where we will be broadcasting the conversation for our readers. Martin is a human computer interaction designer and one of the inventors of the Reactable, currently working as a professor at the Interface Culture Lab at the University of Art and Design Linz, Austria. Peter Kirn is one of our favorite writers and one of the leading thinkers in the realm of music interface design. Together these great minds will explore Reactable Live and discuss the future movements of interface design and music production.
Dubspot covered Reactable Live a few months back and we are eager to see it up close and live for a demo. Reactable’s new (semi) portable Reactable Live instrument is portable enough to travel with for gigs and performances. The company explains it as follows: “The Reactable was conceived as an instrument to bring back the expressive possibilities of traditional instruments to musicians who are working with new technologies. It uses concepts of modular synthesis, sampling, advanced digital effects processing, and DJing and combines them with modern human computer interaction, multitouch technology and a tangible interface.” The new incarnation of this instrument is still a bit pricey (over ten grand) so for those on a budget we recommend checking out the Reactable iOS app.
