The Tech Museum [San Jose, CA]


Role: Directed interactive customization, developed content/text for interactive guide.

Tangent worked with a team of programmers in Barcelona to create the content for a centerpiece of the Tech Museum’s new Innovation Gallery: a customized world music Reactable. It’s a musical instrument that uses sampling, digital effects processing and DJ-ing combined with multi-touch technology to create an explosion of sound and light. It’s the only Reactable on the west coast and the only one in the world that lets people create global music mash-ups. The Reactable was invented by engineers at Pompeu Fabra University in Spain and has been used in performances by world class DJs and musicians such as Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk.
