software is an experimental project involving a network of people interested
in electronic music and musical instruments. The objective is to create
playful and flexible interfaces which function like stand alone instruments.
These tools are inspired by traditional instruments, but as the computer
is an essentially different device than material like strings and wood,
ixi tries to investigate what kind of workspace and material the computer
provides for the modern instrument maker. The ixi software is concerned
with creating software where the performer interacts directly with the
sound - often represented as a visual object on the screen - but the tool
runs on its own, creating unpredictable patterns and structures. The software
is a collection of applications distributed free on the ixi website and
downloaded by thousands of people, many of whom have become part of the
