100 Words – OCTAVIUS
Electronic music is sounding less expressive. This is partly due to the tools and techniques we use to make it. We are moving further away from our natural interactions as we are drawn closer to the modern alternatives such as the mouse and touchscreen. This project looks at a tangible solution to strengthen the relationship with the tools we use to create music and the interactions we use to perform it. OCTAVIUS is a wireless performance platform which encapsulates creative software with a physical product. It incorporates basic interactions with minimal design to encourage creative expression.
