GRIDI – The World’s Largest MIDI Hardware Sequencer?

This Huge MIDI sequencer was exhibited in 2015 at the Israel Museum, Via ask.audio

So you’ve got your MIDI sequencer that fits neatly in your backpack? Here is GRIDI, that won’t fit in your bag or a small room. This sequencer by Yuval Gerstein is big and has its own benefits.

Physical MIDI Sequencers have really captured the imagination of the masses in recent years. Novation’s Launchpad and now Launchpad Pro, Arturia’s Beatstep (and now Beatstep Pro), Maschine, Ableton Push, and Squarp’s Pyramid are a few that have got our sequencing hands a twitchin’.

There’s been a drive to make these sequencers more portable and compact, with obvious benefits. But what if we expanded the sequencer? What if it was bigger than your average dining table or desk? How would we interact with it… would it be more accessible? Would it be encourage collaboration, or perhaps competition?

Inspired by a large-scale Damian Hurst Spot painting at Israel Museum, Yuval Gerstein decided to create something similar, but with the capability to create music as well. And GRIDI was born (Grid + MIDI = GRIDI).

Gridi is a large scale physical midi sequencer (2.80 X 1.65 Meters) with embedded LEDs. GRIDI translates the methodology of composing electronic music inside Ableton Live, into an interactive physical installation. It could easily act as a permanent stand alone installation, as well as part of an art exhibition or event. GRIDI could also have a role in music education, as a tool for learning musical concepts in a non threatening, intriguing way.
