weMix

WeMix is a multiplayer music maker that allows friends to make generative music together. Each player gets a different synthesized instrument represented by a different shape. Players can make music together in real-time or remix samples produced by others at a later time.

The concept of WeMix was born out of the realization that, due to shelter in place, society has lost many rich forms of interaction. Spending time together generally means conversations over video call, which can easily lose its appeal when people are stuck at home without stimulation. The goal of WeMix was to explore forms of non-verbal communication in order to provide society a form of deeper emotional engagement.
