Multi-Touch Stereotronic Multi-Synth Orchestra on a Table (Fashionbuddha)

Stereotronic Multi-Synth Orchestra from fashionbuddha on Vimeo.

Here is the info from the YouTube version:
"Fashionbuddha's submission into Microsoft's Surface developer challenge. Robert Lewis did the design and I ported it over to C# from an application we developed with Zach Archer of Z Industries. This new one is not only built on the XNA framework, but it also reads TUIO data from OSC -encoded XML packets over UDP. This means it can work with either Surface or DIY tables without any configuration...I'm using DirectSound for the synthesis. Not shown in this video is the pitch control, which truly warps everything out nicely. :D"


They didn't have this sort of thing when I took computer music technology back in 2003!

Lynn, thanks for blogging and sharing our project! Its so much cooler to play in person, dont feel the videos really do it justice. (although this one is a little better at it http://www.vimeo.com/6859653)

Also greatly enjoyed reading Don Norma's keynote, thanks for sharing.

I'm glad you enjoyed the keynote- since I use my blogs as on-line filing cabinets, I didn't think twice about posting the whole thing!

You need to make a web-based one in the future, when we will all have multi-touch enabled web browsers!
