Audio Cubes Will Change Live Performances

Audio Cubes from Percussa are one of the most beautiful technical innovations in live music—and a perfect example of Infotropic devices. Light-emitting cubes are placed end to end forming beats, loops and phrases. Changing which side of the cubes face each other changes the patterns, which are user-assigned through software. Moving your hands near and around the cubes changes sound parameters; something Roland has done for years with their D-Beam synthesizers. The video is captivating.

What do you think about Audio Cubes? Cute gimmick or the future of live performances?
