This is pretty cool. Sort of like the Toyota project where they take natural ambient sounds and create music this one is shaped likes a bottle and can remix at any given time. Just take off the cap to start recording and pop it back on to stop – pretty simple. I was also checking out the guy’s computer screen as he was programming the algorithm for this device – he takes my mind-maps to the next level. Take a peek.
This is what the creators had to say about it:
“This is a music medium that can reproduce a recorded voice as music. It makes a database of sound sources that is managed and used as formal and automatic repetitions, and forms a music medium of the day. I felt something missing in the habitual use of music reproduction media, so I thought to create an interactive music medium that changes. By using everyday voices as sources of music, the sounds that are heard all the time every day carry infinite possibilities and help us reaffirm the enjoyment of music. I hope people can experience their own music.”
