The Reactable


Last Tuesday Sergi Jorda performed with the Reactable at Dana Centre in London. The event represents such a success, that it was impossible to find any ticket  for the performance. If anyone has been lucky enough to take part at the event, please send your comments!

What is the Reactable?

The Reactable has been developed at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona by Sergi Jordà, Marcos Alonso, Martin Kaltenbrunner and Günter Geiger.

It is a  futuristic and revolutionary electronic  instrument as it creates synthesiser music in an entirely new way. The Reactable is a round translucent table with a backlit display, used in a darkened room. By placing blocks called tangibles on the table, and interfacing with the visual display via the tangibles or fingertips, a virtual modular synthetiser is operated, creating music or sound effects.

The Reactable has been presented and performed with at various festivals and conferences such as Ars Electronica and Sónar; one of the most famous performance is the Björk’s one in Glastonbury.
