InkQuencer
Oct 2009 - CIID

InkQuencer is a step-sequencer that plays music based on camera input. People can draw patterns on paper and then play back the pattern by holding the drawing in front of the camera.

The program receives the images from the camera and draws a scaled down, 32×30 pixel isometric version. On each beat from the metronome, the scrubber runs through a new column of pixels and plays a sound if the pixel is black.

The InkQuencer creates a new way of interacting with a traditional electronic music interface. The possibilities of playful and randomised music sequencing is taken back into the physical world allowing for a more direct tangible way of experimenting with sound and rhythm.
