OTO by 'Sonic Geometry' Lets Producers Create Music Though Movement

Electronic music producers have long been accustomed to using MIDI controllers as a physical representation of their digital sounds, but 'Sonic Geometry's' OTO devices make those sounds more tactile than ever. Rather than just buttons on a board, Sonic Geometry's OTO is a series of 3D, polyhedral controllers that manipulate sounds through movement.

To use OTO, producers program the sounds they want to work with into their production software of choice, then connect the glowing polyhedrons to their computers. Then, by lifting, shaking, and moving OTO, producers can manipulate the sounds. Far more than a gimmick, Sonic Geometry's OTO can play synths, control a DAW, and even generate visuals.

OTO is especially effective for use as a live performance aid, since the system allows viewers to see a musicians impact on their electronic music more clearly.
