As part of my residency with the Highland Culture Collective, I have been working with inmates of HMP Inverness (aka Porterfield) to co-design an iPad ensemble using TouchOSC and MaxMSP. Using an iterative process, we have been testing and improvising with a series of interface designs, sounds, and collaborative set-ups, making notes and suggestions for further adaptions and possibilities as we go from week to week.

Phase one of this project ended in April 2022, and below are two of the improvisations we recorded during the design process - one focusing on working with arpeggiators and drum machines on the fly, the other experimenting with the iPads' built-in accelerometers to work with tonal changes and physical movement.
