In a continued effort to collapse the gap between sonic, tactile, and visual systems, in this talk Dave & Gabe will present their approach to developing musical structures and environments. With a focus on leveraging a variety of sensor inputs, the presenters will show how TouchDesigner is central to the composition of their projects. They will demonstrate how the TDAbleton package can be used to drive visuals via MIDI and sounds from Ableton. Dave & Gabe will also explain how to send MIDI sequences out of TouchDesigner while controlling external synth and effects parameters. Every physical object imparts its own characteristics onto an interaction: resistance, momentum, texture. By using these unique qualities artists and designers can produce a range of natural hybrid sonic objects.
