Abstract

We have identified potential for tablets to be used as stand-alone tools for audiovisual performance, and not simply as controllers, due to their portability, expressive capabilities of multi-touch, and processing power. To explore this potential, we have developed AV Zones (AudioVisual Zones), an iPad app for audiovisual performance. In a preliminary phase, we conducted interviews with audiovisual performers and a workshop, to understand user needs and desires. We then developed AV Zones, an iPad app for audiovisual performance, composed of an audio sequencer/looper with a visualizer. It explores the interactive potential of a touch screen tablet for integrated musical and visual expression. By default, 3 audiovisual columns or “zones” allow for the manipulation of 3 audio loops. These zones are metaphorical adaptations of channels in a standard audio mixer.
