an interactive
installation by LAB212

Stop-iT is both a visual and a musical sequencer.

It's a new musical creation tool, which
makes the sound more tangible.
By sticking post-it
notes on a surface, people create a musical
piece and mix animations.
The color of a post-it defines the type of instrument, and its vertical position, the pitch of the note.
