Repercussion.org is a collection of on-screen virtual instruments designed for live performance and online user exploration. Rhythms and musical phrases can be dynamically composed and altered based on the arrangement of objects on the screen. The piece is a work in progress that will be updated and customized. A live version can be viewed at http://www.repercussion.org
A goal of this project was to make it engaging enough to encourage the average viewer to experiment, while at the same time being sophisticated enough to allow for a great deal of variation in the sound being generated. The musical compositions are be generated in real-time through algorithms that mapped the screen graphics to the sound arrangement.
