The Morph Table: A collaborative interface for musical interaction

Brown, Andrew R., Wooller, Rene W., & Kate, Thomas (2007) The Morph Table: A collaborative interface for musical interaction. In Riddel, Alistair & Thorogood, Alex (Eds.) Australiasian Computer Music Conference, 19-21 June 2007, Canberra, Australia.


The Morph Table is a new music interface designed for collaborative music making. It comprises a software system that generates transitions and variations (morphs) between MIDI-based musical material, and a table-top hardware design on which cubes representing algorithmic parameters are moved around to control generative music. Like other table-top interfaces the size and multiple objects afford social interaction. The generative music system of the Morph Table makes it particularly suited to installations and use by inexperienced users. This paper outlines the design and usage features of the Morph Table.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
