|Abstract||The reacTable is a novel multi-user electro-acoustic musical instrument with a tabletop tangible user interface. In this paper we will focus on the various collaborative as- pects of this new instrument as well as on some of the re- lated technical details such as the networking infrastruc- ture. The instrument can be played both in local and remote collaborative scenarios and was designed from the very be- ginning to serve as a musical instrument for several simul- taneous players.
