Section: New Software and Platforms



Skini is a distributed system for composing and producing live performances with audience participation using HTML5 devices. Skini is developed in Hop and HipHop. It proposes a framework for composing music based on patterns and dynamic control of the orchestration for either synthesizers or musicians.

The system has two basic concepts, "Pattern" and "Orchestration" which can be modulated as much as the composer wants in terms of complexity, duration, etc. The platform is meant for interaction with the audience during the show. Each participant can interact with the platform as well as with other participants. According to our experience during the Golem show in MANCA 2017, we implemented five levels of interaction, which allowed theoretically 120 possible combinations.
