Traks is a combinatorial sound toy. Mixing model railroads and 1960’s minimalist composition, Traks allows players to build up circular networks of bifurcating rails that branch out into both simple and complex combinations of musical possibility. By placing notes, “tranes”, and semaphores into this ludic rail yard, a modular melody emerges, otherwise known as algorithmic music.

Traks will be exhibited at the Festival Gamerz as a playable prototype for iPad.
