• Sonify local weather and astronomical events.

• Use activity types as mode switches, for example walking to automotive. 

• Use biosignals musically for embodied cognition and biofeedback loops.

When used passively, Holon.ist leaves your hands free for your conventional instruments, or anything else. Try controlling timbre and effects with a Suunto Movesense on your head. Add another sensor on your foot for pedal action anywhere.

Holon.ist features a multiuser implementation of Ableton Link that allows collective sync of tempo for every device on the network.
