ixiQuarks is a software environment designed for live musical improvisation that allows for user interaction on hardware, GUI and code level. The environment enables innumerable setups with flexible loading of tools and instruments. The ixiQuarks consist of different types of tools: basic utilities, instruments, effects, filters, spectral effects and generators.
This software is written in SuperCollider and is part of an extended research programme exploring human-computer interaction in computer music.
