DavidByrne.com - How Music Works

Thu, 06/26/2014 - 12:26 -- rprice

How Music Works is David Byrne's remarkable and buoyant celebration of a subject he's spent a lifetime thinking about. He explains how profoundly music is shaped by its time and place, and how the advent of recording technology forever changed our relationship to playing, performing, and listening to music. Acting as historian and anthropologist, raconteur and social scientist, he searches for patterns—and tells us how they have affected his own work over the years with Talking Heads and his many collaborators.

Mogees - Play the World by Bruno Zamborlin — Kickstarter

Sat, 02/22/2014 - 14:30 -- rprice

Mogees consists of a mobile app and a small sensor that detects and analyses the vibrations that we make when we interact with the objects around us. It uses a special sound technique to alter their acoustic properties so as to make them musical. Above all, it's about everyone making beautiful music out of ordinary objects. Just plug it in and play the world. If you have 90 seconds, watch the video below, in which the 10 year old son of one of our friends plays Mogees in song mode:

▶ Wearable neuroheadsets: on mind-controlling our environment - YouTube

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 11:14 -- rprice

Mind-controlled computing is a new field. So new, that in 2009, Emotiv Systems open-sourced their brainwave-reading headset to developers and researchers to help drive innovation. Musician Richard Warp responded to the challenge. Warp is a composer, married to a neuroscientist, who believes in creating music with your mind. Using a neuroheadset (his is an Emotiv EPOC, but there are plenty of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) on the market these days for under $100), he built a generative music system that responds to the brain signal.
