Beat Dice is a Toby K independent artwork, commissioned for Vivid Light 2015.
Beat Dice engages participants in a collaborative musical experience using illuminated sensor cubes that can be manipulated to “mash-up” music. The interactive Beat Dice can access diverse musical sounds and rhythms ranging from viola to break-beats. As people assemble sounds they are also assembling a bespoke light sculpture. The vision for Beat Dice was to give participants access to the core tools of composition in an intuitive and immediate way, enabling them to jam and improvise in a live musical collaboration.
Beat Dice has continued to tour at a number of festivals and interactive art events in Perth, New York and at Burning Man Festival 2015, in Nevada.
