Created by Feedtank, Transpose is an audiovisual performance instrument devised to encourages physical movement in electronic music performances. In Transpose, the performer’s silhouette is projected in front of them along with noteboxes, which produce a sound when touched. The performer can change between instruments and record loops that can be turned on or off to create layered compositions.
In May 2008, Feedtank collaborated with musician Shelley Burgon to produce a performance using the instrument, at the Schenectady Museum & Suits-Bueche Planetarium as a part of its Edison Media Project series.
Founded in 2004 by Jonah Warren and Steven Sanborn, Feedtank is a small interactive studio specializing in the creation of playful interactive experiences. It’s constantly experimenting with new technologies, coming up with ideas, and creating prototypes. Feedtank’s goal is to create experiences that allow people to interact with technology in new ways, making it more human, approachable, and fun.
