The revolutionary Reactable instrument hits the stage with its new incarnation: The Reactable Live! It brings all the possibilities of the original Reactable and makes it portable and easy to setup. The Live! version of the instrument allows you to touch and see the music while performing. The different sound generation and manipulation modules, which are real physical objects, permit infinite flexibility and control in musical expression. Exploring and using modern techniques of music production has never been easier or more exciting.
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 Reactable Live! is a completely new experience in live music performance.
From May 28 until July 13, 2012, you can register to participate by submitting your music compositions created with Reactable mobile. The 20 tables with the most likes on July 13th will be evaluated by a jury of renowned Reactable Artists. The highest scored participant will win a Reactable Live!
The jury members will be:
- Damian Taylor, who played the Reactable during Björk’s Volta tour.
- Oliver Huntemann, DJ and producer from Germany.
- Amo+Navas, DJ and producer team from Spain.
- Nortec Collective: Bostich + Fussible, Grammy nominated music collective from Mexico.
- And the creators of the Reactable.
A Second Reactable Live! will be awarded to a Music School.
The highest ranking participant associated with a music school will win a second table for their school! If you belong to a Music School don’t forget to mention it in the register form. It’s not required, but why not win a Reactable for your school? If you want more information about how schools can participate write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
