Interactive installation

Tact, a device installed at the Centre Pompidou, invites the public to take part in a collective and urban creation; both sonic and visual. Tact is a graphic palette that lets you explore a panorama, a photograph, and modify the contours, the drawing, and the musical environment. The map is the territory. Each gesture on the touch screen triggers an event and musical grammar, imagined by composers and sound designers brought together by the pleasure of working with one another. Tact is in the spirit of Upic, the composition tool that Iannis Xenakis designed to control a structure, a dynamic, through graphical gesture. Harmonizing the hand that draws and the hand that plays, the premeditated and the random, the expert and the amateur.
