More about this from Mike & Markus of Hochschule Hof here.

WHile you are there, check out their Holz Case sequencer as well. It's a more tangible version of this sequencer using small beads.

Oh right, this is the newly released Stylophone Beatbox. Amazing little box for $25 US.

Tasting Music with Michihito Mizutani

Tangible Media is def where digital will be in 5 years, leaving the web and computers as we know them to the 3rd world... yet another interesting tangible media project, this one letting you interact with, well... the tangible media old school, CDs.


This table recognizes which CD jacket is placed on it and shows the song list of the CD. The user can chose and play any song by moving the mouse device.

It is almost impossible to talk about a sound of a piece of music with your friends if you can not hear the sound of the music played. This table is meant to be situated in a cafe or a music shop, where people can eat, drink and chat with friends. These are all comfortable situation, and listening to music also helps to create a comfortable situation.

Audiopad

 Category: music tech
Posted: 2007-06-27 02:25, Edited: 2007-06-27 05:25



Oldschool these days (yes lads 2003 is old school) , but still a nice clip...


Audiopad is a composition and performance instrument for electronic music which tracks the positions of objects on a tabletop surface and converts their motion into music. One can pull sounds from a giant set of samples, juxtapose archived recordings against warm synthetic melodies, cut between drum loops to create new beats, and apply digital processing all at the same time on the same table. Audiopad not only allows for spontaneous reinterpretation of musical compositions, but also creates a visual and tactile dialogue between itself, the performer, and the audience.

Audiopad has a matrix of antenna elements which track the positions of electronically tagged objects on a tabletop surface. Software translates the position information into music and graphical feedback on the tabletop. Each object represents either a musical track or a microphone.

Paris’ IRCAM is today’s most advanced research centre for electronic music worldwide. Tech Stuff went to the subterraneans of the Pompidou Centre to meet the IRCAM scientists and composers and get them to spill their secrets.

X-Ray Sound Recordings!

All I can say is WOW!

In the USSR and Eastern Europe in the 1950s underground night spots would play music pirated from the west. The only media they had were recorders etched into discarded X-ray film. Researcher Camille Cloutier pointed me to these, collected and posted by József Hajdú. Here's what he says about them:

During the late 1930s and early 1940s the prevalent sound recording apparatus was the wax disk cutter. As a consequence of the lack of materials in the war-time economy, some inventive sound hunters made their own experiments with new materials within their reach.

Bassline Baseline is another nice film from Nate Harrison, who made the "Can I get an Amen" film, about the history of the Amen drum sample. This one is about the Roland TB-303, which of course if you are reading this blog, then you will probably need no introduction.

soundbombs

 Category: music tech
Posted: 2006-05-25 00:50, Edited: 2006-05-25 03:50

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/soundbomb.jpg

Interesting to see sound art coming about again. I rememeber this sort of thing happening when radioshack released their 8bit sample plaback chips. I also remember the 555 light de-activated crickets, which were killer since they stopped churping when you turn on the lights...

Anyway hear is a new idea in the medium of "New-Media-Accessories" (who the hell coined that awful phrase)...

Soundbombs are New-Media-Accessories. Each one a lowtech object for interactive transmission. An integrated soundmodul makes it possible to record any given sound and then activate it through a motiondetector. As a Non-Visual Graffiti, with its origin in streetart, Soundbombs give the possibility to tag a place in an accoustic form: a welcoming greeting at the entrance or a warning of a bad restaurant. Each owner can leave a personal message anywhere and at any time. Soundbombs can whistle, laugh, belch or recite a poem.

One can apply for the purchase of a Soundbomb – only those who deserve a Soundbomb, get a Soundbomb! if one is elected, he/she obtains an unique "accoustic" email addresse (e.g. thud@soundbombs.info).

monome

It's been an amaizing year for new 'sequencing' and control interfaces for music. Years ago I could only dream of these recent inventions, since the closest thing that existed was massivly expensive buchlas/serges, or even lighting controllers, which started showing up with MIDI in the late 80's. Then came things like the Kaos, and the FaderFox and this weird thing and another that Hawtin is using, and the newest latest, the tenori-on from yamaha.

Still it is nice to see something like this that, while very abstract, could really have a million uses for live composition.

Mungo Sync²

 Category: music tech
Posted: 2006-04-01 20:14, Edited: 2006-04-01 23:14

http://archive.pxlpark.com/upload/syncV2.jpg

Introducing a revolution in live sequencing, this device allows slave sequencers to be stopped and started in sync while leaving the master clock source running to keep the beats flowing.

Anyone who has ever used a din sync device with any sort of MIDI clock will know the wonder that this thing claims to be. Particularly when you start/stop a bit thru a set, and the clock goes out the window. And well it jsut looks so damn cool to have a little metal box with a big red button on stage. Very Cool.

They also have a few 606 mods to boot... So have a look around.

Wow this is really crazy! and the secret design is finally out. $1475.00 USD, isn't half bad for a machine that looks this nice, designed by Bob Moog. It actaully reminds me of early minimoog prototypes, with that "world of tomorrow" 70's design, that Bob scrapped for the design we all know and love.

With Bob's passing last year, it had to be one of the seriously saddest moments for music. But it's nice to see his one last design, that was made for us, come to fruition.

The specs on this thing are pretty similar to a Multi, but probably a lot more stable. What's missing is the ribbon controller?!?!

I can't believe I have never heard of this thing. It is total madness.

ebay link here

mke you gotta buy this one just on principle alone... jen won't mind.


UPDATE: A little googling found this:

Logan Vocal synth (1978) made in Italy by LE Logan Electronics, Porto Recanati. Big and very heavy (35kg!!!) 61 key poly/mono multi-keyboard featuring three independent and layerable sections;

- Strings - essentially the same as in the contemporary Logan String-Melody
- 3-VCO mono-synth!
- Vocalist (polyphonic choir-synth)
