What if you could twist a piece of sound in the air? With a little knowledge of SuperCollider, you can create your own live electroacoustic music with Greap (Grain + Leap) – an experimental interactive music environment. It started as a research project to investigate the gestural manipulation of sound events, and explore the affordances of open air interfaces.

With my latest project, I’ve been exploring how the Leap Motion Controller can make our interactions with electronic sounds feel more “direct” and intuitive.
