Buying Choices
Started as a research project to create a "totally new electronic musical instrument" the Reactable has so captured the imagination of musicians (see Bjork) and casual observers (see countless Youtube views), that a production model has been developed – it's hand built and will set you back a cool 25k Euros, but it's selling. Museums, clubs and wealthy artists are all lining up to get their hand-built Reactable Experience units delivered. Later this year, the team plan to work on an industrially manufactured Reactable which will bring the price down to a more affordable point - well I say affordable - Reactable's Martin suggested it would be within the reach of those who might buy a piano - not sure if that was an upright from an auction or a Yamaha C3.... We got a rare chance to actually see one in the flesh at MESSE this year and also to have a chat with it's inventors.
