The MultiMixer application allows a user to explore different versions of a song using a touch surface. As you navigate the space, the alternate genres of the song are blended in real time based on your location. You can hear the song change between rock, acoustic, electronic and ambient. Each song was produced specifically for the MultiMixer since each version must blend with the others at all points in the song. The figure shows how each version of the song may leverage the same material with different processing techniques or use separate source instruments entirely.
