The Artikulator app creates sounds from drawings, making use of the larger touch surface of the iPad.
Experiments with the larger touch surface of the iPad are informing different ways that users might interact with the device for music creation. Created over a 24 hour time period on Music Hackday, Artikulator is an iPad app that creates sounds from drawings. These sounds vary according to the speed and shapes of drawn lines.
While the app is still a work in progress, the Artikulator prototype points to the possibility of visual counterparts to music composition.
The program was initiated by developers Mike Rotondo and Luke Iannini
