Polyadic: involving three or more quantities, elements, or individuals.
Polyadic is a networked music interface designed to research collaborative music making. All prototypes operate in both desktop mode and VR mode (HTC Vive). Currently, the interface only consists of a drum sequencer (PolyDrum) but the intention is to develop more methods of digital music creation such as simple synthesis sequencing (PolyAcid) and an effects routing matrix (PolyWeave).
The interface explores the constraints of collaborative viewpoint and temporality, inspired by current practice and workflows. The research looks to uncover key design factors for professional music technology in spatial media.
