ScratchWorx entertainment table

The ScratchWorx multi-media DJ/VJ mixing console for live performance with 3 (or more) people simultaneously! All digital material is mixed DJ/VJ alike yet by non-traditional ways of hardware controllers. Waag Society provided their underlying software named KeyWorx and continued the prototype to a next level, by Bas van Abel and Waag Society.

The question Waag Society asked was to make KeyWorx suitable for Montessori students. Given that KeyWorx had a very complex interface aside from all thinkable media and input devices, there are many filters and settings to combine: hexagons, octagons and opening spirals with dots that can be dragged and (inter)connected. This for each KeyWorx client logs into the server that created one total performance in imagery and sound.

This project gave me the perfect opportunity to make the software, tangible!
