Photon Salon

The Photon Salon allows you to explore your musical and visual creativity by interacting with a “casual instrument” called the Space Palette Pro. Musical notes and colorful graphics are completely under your control as you finger-paint on four multi-touch pressure-sensitive pads. No pre-recorded media is used; your experience is unique, personal, and immersive.

Tim Thompson is a software engineer, musician, and interactive installation artist. His wide-ranging artistic work includes a programming language for MIDI, interactive installations at Burning Man and other festivals, musical performances with PlayStation dance pads and QWERTY keyboards, and real-time video looping and processing with a handheld security camera. Recently, Tim has focused on the expressive potential of three-dimensional input in visual music instruments, using devices such as the Microsoft Kinect (in the original Space Palette) and the Sensel Morph (in the newer Space Palette Pro).
