The nUFO – Nontrivial Musical UFO – is a new digital music instrument that facilitates a unique form of intuitive gestural play supported by its wireless interface and special software architecture. Unlike conventional musical instruments, it can be moved freely in space: orientation, tilt and movement influence the music in realtime.


• The first available instrument that you can move freely in space!
• Fully wireless handheld Interactor


• Gestures become music
• Movement becomes meaning
• Ultra-fast learning curve - suitable for kids, too


The Post-Control mantra: LOSE CONTROL, GAIN INFLUENCE:
• forget about those pesky parameters and mappings
• just move, listen and play by ear
• complex intuitive control at your fingertips
• The Influx © mapping between movement data and sound parameters takes care of everything.
• after all, when do you really have full control ?-)


• Hardware: nUFO_Interactor in your hands
• Software: nUFO_App on your computer


• control up to 4 sounds simultaneously with your gestures


• create enveloping multichannel audio in stereo, quadro, 5.1 surround, 7.1, sound dome - you name it -
• just connect a multichannel audio interface and you're good to go!


• all software is open source and easily accessible.
• extend it with your own sounds by following a super-simple protocol
• or use it as an interface for any of your OSC-aware sound&visuals applications
• The Airborne nUFO_App is proudly made with SuperCollider
