Whirligig is software designed for use in a performance or improvisational setting. Images are collected by digitizing them from live video and pre-recorded material. Then the user can play improvised image sequences like an instrument, layering them together, fluttering them back and forth, or using the scratch tool to change sequence direction on the fly. Kevin and Jennifer McCoy have used the software as a collaborative tool for working with musicians, composers, and DJs such as Pauline Oliveros, SoundLab, HotMouth, Andrew Deutsch, Pere Bode, and Damian Catera.
