Armin van Buuren took to Facebook to share a video of himself toying around with an innovative electronic instrument that is sure to push the envelope when it comes to live music production. The Reactable Experience is described on the official website as an “electronic musical instrument that enables everyone to experiment with sound.” It is a visually interactive tool that allows for a multi-sensory experience while creating sequences of sound. You have to see it to believe it. 

The Reactable has attracted attention from listeners, music enthusiasts and musicians, alike. In fact, several DJs and producers have been particularly drawn to the uniquely captivating technology. Reactable has an 'Artist Edition' section of their site dedicated to highlighting those within the EDM sphere who use Reactable as their primary means of production.

It certainly looks like a toy, with all the knobs and pieces throughout the design. However, if incorporated into the live performances of artists such as Van Buuren, the Reactable could be a game-changer, expanding possibilities as far as live mixing and visuals.  

Lets build a beat! #messe2015 #Frankfurt
