Re: dancing loops - MIDI Ball Website
Hi Matthias. I would guess that the idea of the MIDI Ball could be applied in many different ways, including the way you have proposed. I think that it would be great! I wonder if Tactex could actually make a small handball out of their smartfabric. I know that StarrLabs used small rubber balls (cut in half) in a custom controller that they built. Although this is applied in a much different fashion that what you have proposed, I think that the precedent is already there.

looks nice... probably the triggers are wireless, not the MIDI
signal... and it does not seem to be a comercial product.
do you think this is artistically interesting? I guess the public
just grabs on it as soon as it reaches it, so there is no expression
exept eager... no?
I had rather imagined the size of a hand ball, so a dancer can play
with it and create rhythms, maybe melodic things by squeezing it...
thank you for that inspiration anyway!
