Spin is a music installation and RjDj scene that combines realtime sound generation with listener interactivity. The arrangement of the music including drum patterns and synth melodies are being created in realtime. Furthermore, sounds from your own environment are being dynamically processed so as to play in the same key and rhythm as the original percussion instruments.
For the installation, each listener’s headset controls a ball on the screen that, when moved into any of the four edges of the screen, affects the music in different ways. When in 1-player mode i.e. only the blue ball is on the screen, the listener can alter the music by themselves. In 2-player mode however, both listeners must move their corresponding balls into the same areas together to achieve the various musical effects, encouraging communication and collaboration.
