Illusio Looping Machine

Illusio Looping Machine

Illusio is a live looping tool that enables musicians to sketch their own loop controls in a multitouch table. Illusio has received the support of Rumos Ita├║ Cultural Arte Cibern├ętica 2009, and was shortlisted in the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) Interaction Awards 2013.

The Illusio was prototyped in Processing and Openframeworks, in 2011. More information can be found on my old website.
