REXband lets you experience medieval music in a new way. You play a medieval hurdy-gurdy, tambourine, or harp, together with other visitors - but thanks to computer support, your "band" will always play together in tune. And a virtual audience will let you know how you did.

REXband is fun to play and jam with complete strangers. You'll also learn some basics of medieval music by interacting with the system. The instruments are realistic reconstructions of medieval music instruments with electronic sensors to detect your playing and create the right sound.

REXband was developed by Marius Wolf, Eric Lee and Professor Jan Borchers between 2004 and 2007 as part of the REX Regensburg Experience project.
