The different versions of the ToneLadder (basic version setup ladder, dynamic ladder, wireless wall-ladder) can be used as serious MIDI input devices. An artist balancing on the ladder to trigger soundloops, looks more compelling than the traditional static guys behind laptops and keyboards. The audience can directly wittness the creation of the sound. Instead of keys and buttons, this input device is a piece of actual hardware, that everybody can touch and feel.
The ladders can also be used to trigger live video streams. The combination of screens and people in action creates an impressive stage show. Together with analog and digital musicians a stage performance with 3-6 people, up to 3 ladders and individual video projections can be performed.
