surfaceTouchEvent is an interactive sound installation by Tyler Tamburo that uses a tablet to control four acoustic string instruments. When the viewer interacts with the tablet by moving their finger across the surface, the action is translated into data and sent over a wireless network to a computer that interprets that data and uses it to control four pairs of motors, one pair in each instrument, that strike the strings.
