Hop and the CircleMaze are scheduled for six months of exhibition
at the Zeum Art and Technology Center in San Francisco. Zeum's mission
is threefold - to provide hands-on, participatory environment for
youth arts expression; to create opportunities for collaboration
among young people, artists, and educators; and to integrate the
arts into the classroom curriculum. The Jam-O-World will be part
of a museum-wide exhibit on gaming, opening in May 2001.
Circle Maze will be exhibited at SIGGRAPH 2001's Emerging Technologies
Venue. The Circle Maze is an interactive musical game that encourages
player communication through a shared audio-visual experience. A
relative of the Jam-O-Drum (SIGGRAPH 2000), the CircleMaze combines
novel input devices with a projected tabletop. Players participate
in a collaborative game and make music at the same time.
Jam-O-Drum was exhibited in SIGGRAPH 2000's Emerging Technologies
Venue. It is a multi-user interactive music system that combines
drumming and real-time computer graphics in a collaborative environment.
Up to three players collaborate in a musical improvisation via velocity-sensitive
input devices, while their performance is augmented with computer
graphics imagery on a tabletop surface. See a quicktime interview
with Tina Blaine at SIGGRAPH 2000 here.

museum combining interactive and interpretive exhibits to tell
the story of the creative, innovative and rebellious expression
that defines American popular music. Featuring a world-class collection
of artifacts, unique architecture by Frank O. Gehry, state-of-the-art
technology, and exciting interactive presentations, EMP will encourage
visitors of all ages and backgrounds to experience the power and
joy of music in its many forms.
