ScreenPlay Test

A recent test of ScreenPlay, the interactive computer music system I have been developing as part of my PhD research into human-computer interaction in music at the University of Salford.

The TouchOSC graphical user interfaces hosted on the four iPads communicate with Ableton Live 9 via a series of Max For Live patches and function much in the same way as does the Ableton Push MIDI controller; allowing for the button-matrix-style, grid-based playing surface to be locked in a specific key signature/scale or played chromatically, and for any standard triad within the selected key/scale to be formed using the same hand-shape in any position on the grid.

The next stage in the development of the system will be the introduction of both generative and transformative algorithmic procedures reliant upon second order Markovian processes and the alteration of rhythmic and textural/timbral characteristics, as well as the pitch-classes of the source-material respectively.
