»Fox in the Box« is a modular MIDI/OSC Controller specifically developed for collaborative Live-Performance of electronic music. A musical piece is respresented by little boxes, each one of them controlling one individual part of the compostion. These parts can be switched on and off by tilting the boxes. Additionally, a set of sound modifiers is available through little sensoric devices which act as sound effects mapped to a specific input gesture a user can perform on the pad.
»Fox in the Box« was presented at the Ars Electronica campus 2.0 exhibition in Linz, 2007. The current prototype is realized using Arduino Hardware Boards with Bluetooth functionality and custom Java software controlling Ableton‘s Live software over MIDI.
