The HybridScreen is based on a screen with a transparent acrylic sheet mounted on it (see figure below). Textures were manually engraved on the acrylic using various tools (dremel, sand paper, etc.). Each texture generates a different sound or rhythmic pattern. A contact microphone glued to the acrylic sheet picks up the sounds happening on it. They are then digitized and used to drive a series of simple modal physical models from the Faust-STK, ranging from Tibetan bowls to metal bars, etc. The screen provides visual feedback to the performer by displaying a 3D sphere whose color and size change in function of the amplitude and the spectrum of the generated sound. A distance sensor can be used to control some of the parameters of the models (e.g., duration of the resonance, pitch, etc.).
