Since about 5 years, CataRT is used extensively as a performance instrument by a growing number of musicians, and has stabilised and been tried and tested in many performances. This is why the Inventor Composer Coaction call for new instruments was a welcome occasion to present this instrument to a wider audience, and to advance towards a systematic assessment of how to play and compose with CataRT.
To this end, the CataRT as an Instrument page collects the links to sound and video examples demonstrating CataRT as an expressive performance instrument.
Since CataRT must be seen as a whole family of possible instruments, around the core concept of the timbral sound space that is played by navigation, the actual instrument is determined by the controller that steers the navigation.
