TACTO - Textural Music Box, is an experimental instrument developed by Beatswin that uses commonly found materials to develop a type of organic sound design which adds a new dimension to the Artist’s sound. In essence, TACTO is a wooden box with a motor and electronics controlled by a laptop to create motion that will generate sounds which are then amplified using contact microphones. The sounds are then sent through Ableton Live and modified with real time effects to create rhythmic textures, noises and drones.
