Electronic musicians and blogger (Modulate This!) Mark Mosher has introduced 9 Box Method, a new system that allows for performance, improvisation, and "spontaneous tribal jams" with music, sound, and light.

9 Box isn't a product, but a concept - a consistant and transportable method that overlays comercially available components such as Ableton Live, and Percussa AudioCubes.

It's also a set of templates and patches that will allow players to spend more time making music and sound than configuring hardware and software.  The first edition of 9 Box will be based on 6 Percussa AudioCubes., but Mosher plans to adapt it to the Novation Launchpad, too.

"9 Box" refers to a 3x3 matrix of 9 clips - hence the "9 Box".

Why 9 clips? 9 clips can be mapped to a single AudioCube and are a small enough number that it's easy to keep track of the relationship between the physical interfaces and the sound phrases.

The system is intended for applications in social musical jams, music education, music therapy, installations, and festivals and supports 1-4 players per instance. Without changing any settings, or having to reconfigure controllers, the system can organically scale from 1-4 players. Playsers simply decide what role they will take and re-arrange the cubes accordingly.

Mosher's video, above, demonstrates setting up and getting started with 9 Box Method. Details and template downloads are available at the site.
