Angular Drum Synthesis

HERE’S A QUICK look at a very cool multi-touch drum synthesis program made by Kevin Schlei. It seems like a pretty complex instrument. To hear Schlei describe his instrument:

Instead of mapping touch positions (X and Y coordinates) directly to synthesis parameters, relationships such as angle, distance, and velocity compared to other points are used… Mapped parameters include: number of active points, points created per second, points held per second, points’ distance and angle to previous, and average X and Y position of all points.
