New Music Interface – The CCC-Pad (Sneak Preview)

Håkan Lidbo tipped us off to the CCC-Pad, described as “a creative media interface where sounds and video can be played in a new and intuitive way”.

The first version will be on the market in fall 2012, but the big touch screen prototype was tested at the Swedish Eurovision Song Contest, Jan 11, embedded above.

The CCC-PAd is a prototype and part of an extensive research project by Dr Rikard Lindell in collaboration with Lidbo, programmers and designers.

The concept of the CCC-Pad project is that everyone can interact with each other. Most live electronic music is about musicians playing on separate units without the possibility to effect each others music. Same for visual artists. With CCC-Pad, everyone can manipulate, change, add and delete anything, both music and video. Everything is connected to everything else.

Collaborators in this projects are the designers Oskar Kjelleryd and Haithem Mizban from Quantum White and the programmers Fredrik Jansson and Dr Rikard Lindell from Mälardalen University. CCC-Pad is a part of the C3LOOPS project.
