Abstract: Named for the combination of the words DJ and Jamming, the DJammer allows its users to manipulate their music using standard DJ techniques as well as interact with others in virtual jam sessions through the exchange and sharing of multiple music streams. In this paper, we describe the evolution of the DJammer including the interactive process and evaluation which led to the latest prototype. This latest prototype allows its users to "touch" their digital music through single- handed manipulation and control. By allowing both creativity and communication with digital music, the DJammer is a new musical instrument which takes the next step in the evolution of portable music players. Notes: Copyright IEEE. To be published in the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME), 6-8 July 2005, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
