Reactable Demonstration at SSR London
The team behind the Reactable recently brought a “Reactable Live!” system for an exclusive demonstration at SSR London.
The event caused a real buzz around SSR and there was a great atmosphere on the night with students, industry professionals and music experts all excited to see this unique piece of technology up close. Reactable’s Serji Jorda kicked things off with a performance and demonstration on the machine, with audience members then invited to try the instrument for themselves.
The Reactable is a revolutionary electronic musical instrument that turns music making into something tangible and visual and has been used by high profile musicians such as Bjork. The Live! version of the instrument allows users to touch and see the music while performing.
SSR London Head of Audio Jonathan Espinosa:
“I am delighted that SSR was selected to host this major music event with one of the most innovative music composition instruments around. This cutting edge technology is a window into the world of future music making tech, and it was great to see our students getting involved and having a go themselves!”
Serji Jorda, Reactable:
“I had lots of fun tonight, it was awesome to be able to show the Reactable off to the SSR students and guests, all of whom have an obviously deep interest in music technology and production. It was perfect to hold this event at SSR in London and it turned out to be a great night!”
One of our close partners, Definition Group, provided an amazing Funktion One soundsystem for the evening which enhanced the experience for everyone in attendance. Definition Group’s MD Adam West also tutors on our Audio Engineering course and our Recording & Music Production short course.
Adam West, Definition group MD:
“It was great to be involved in this event. Definition Group prides itself as being at the cutting edge of modern music technology and our on-going relationship with SSR London is something that we enjoy and are proud to be part of.”
We would like to pay special thanks to Serji Jorda and the Reactable team for all their time and effort in staging the event, and also to everyone who came along on the evening and helped make the night a great success.
