Mrmr ( is an ongoing research project to develop a standardized set of protocols and syntax conventions to control live installations and multimedia performances via mobile devices. The project was begun by Eric Redlinger, then researcher-in-residence at the Polytechnic Institute of NYU's experimental media center. The project is open-source and the code base is freely available at

Mrmr enables you to use ordinary cell phones and PDAs as controllers in audio-visual performances, or to participate in interactive museum exhibits, or to use your mobile device in the place of the mouse or trackpad from your full-size computer. It also makes a great, free OSC controller for Max/MSP, VDMX and other VJ/DJ software.

Key elements of the Mrmr project are:
• create your own interfaces using only a text editor
• multiuser by design / client peer-to-peer or client-server models supported
• open standards (zeroconfig/bonjour/mdns, OSC)
• dynamic interfaces: widgets can be reconfigured 'on the fly'

Excellent with Pure Data

This is a very interesting app allowing easy and effective OSC links with pd patches. It is easy to build a remote UI to control video or audio with buttons, sliders, text ... the web element has great potential. I have found it best to text edit layouts since the gui editor has problems.
Shame it is not currently supported but it works well. Worth exploring.

Great idea

Needs refining and as an open source project that's up to us as much as them..perfect launching place for developing audio apps
