The *Table*

The *Table*


Our instrument is an interactive tabletop for playing music in a 3D space where the upper–body and fingers’ free movements in mid-air extend the action of the fingers’ physical contacts with a screen.


The goal of this new instrument is to allow electronic music producers to connect with both the musical material and their audience, putting forward embodied expressions through natural and expert gestures. 




The World is mine Oyster
Playing the Table at the opening of an art exhibition - The World is mine Oyster -  in London (11/12/16).

Table Embodme // Cristal Baschet
Original composition for Cristal Baschet and Table. Created for the festival "Musique aux Mines",  at MINES ParisTech, Paris - (05/09/17).

Mixed and Contemporary Music Performances

A contemporary music composition by Viky Tsekouropoulou was recently written for two Tables and a string quartet. This challenging creation opened new horizons for our instrument in the domain of contemporary and mixed music. The concert premiered at the Thessaloniki Megaron music hall in July 2016 and a second was held in Paris at the festival "Musique aux Mines" in september 2016.
