Paint a masterpiece with MIDI on Dr. Dot

MIDI devices open up millions of possibilities in the world of music creation, maybe it’s time to explore their possibilities in other arts.

Dr. Dot is a fascinating piece of painting software that, using the power of a MIDI controller, allows you to experiment with dot painting for incredible results. It’s basically next level spiral art.

Created by Jeffrey Alan Scudder, the program works with MIDI Fighter Twister controllers to paint and select colours and the movement of your paintbrush. See it in action and you’ll see just how crazy and beautiful the possibilities are with Dr. Dot.

Open up the MIDI Fighter Utility app and download Scudder’s linked configuration file. Then painting away with your controller is as simple as heading to this link: dr.dot.justanothersystem.org

Speaking on DJ Tech Tools, Scudder says: “I built Dr. Dot to demonstrate my own theory of picture resolution and to build an animated painting called Tumpin, but quickly realized that it was also an impressively expressive instrument for live painting and spiral art.”
