Space Palette — A New Instrument for Music and Visuals

Space Palette performance at STEIM in Amsterdam April 2012

Conceptual Overview of how hand motions in the holes control music and graphics*

Full disclosure:

The original idea and intial sketch for the oval space frame design by the raccoon.

For Tim, performing on the SP is the next best thing to watching others enjoy it (photographed by Rachael Torres).

*NOTE: The control diagram is only conceptual, to give a general idea of correlation between hand motions and music/graphics output. For example, in the current instantiation, graphics controls are overlaid onto the major music controls, so that one hand motion in a large hole will generate both music and graphics.
