This article investigates the theoretical and the practical terms in the formation of Squatouch, which is a computer-based musical interface and offers a multitouch user interface via the forms of direct interaction. Multi-disciplinary structure, named as Interaction Design today, carries the communication methods with computers to a different level day by day. Initially based on only mouse and keyboard interaction and single-user oriented interaction paradigms, it now provides multi-user oriented alternative interaction methods thanks to the rapid improvements in technology. However, the technology providing the user those opportunities expects the user to learn a new language. Multitouch interfaces are among these new languages through which more than one user can interact directly by using their hands without a mouse or a keyboard. In that context, the following article presents Squatouch, which carries the humancomputer interaction to a higher level by providing a tangible interface that is alternative to traditional graphical user interface.
