Ensemble Metatone plays improvised and experimental music using Charles Martin's iPad-instruments and percussion. Recorded live in Canberra at the ANU School of Music 2013-08-03, this concert followed a series of rehearsals-as-research where the performers thoroughly explored two iPad app-instruments through improvised performance.
In these contemplative works, the group performs on iPads with a vocabulary of touch-gestures inspired by their percussive backgrounds and, conversely, uses acoustic percussion instruments to mimic and augment the apps' sound-palettes.
