Playing the piano with Percussa AudioCubes

June 10, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

In this short demo video, Percussa AudioCubes is used to automatically generate multiple piano melodies, using the new generative music software created for the AudioCubes by Percussa. Each cube uses a different groove and a limited number of notes to play its melody. All notes are in the same scale, so you don’t need to know the details of the scale to create music in harmony. By turning a cube you can choose a different groove. Cubes are placed next to the green PLAY cube to start playback.

By placing cubes next to each other, you can make them adapt to each other’s melody automatically. The notes generated by the AudioCubes and software is sent via MIDI to the General MIDI synthesizer available for free with Windows or Mac OSX.  Because every AudioCube plays a different melody and they are all related in tempo and in key, the result is “four hand piano music”.

All software for AudioCubes is free, for users who bought the AudioCubes hardware. Visit http://www.percussa.com/ to learn more about AudioCubes and contact us if you have any questions about AudioCubes, this video or the software used. Always happy to help!
