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:
Inspired by cultural moon myths and beliefs from around the world, Moon Show 143 is a theatrical duet combining live and recorded sound, puppetry, and movement. Following the moon on its cyclical journey with Earth, the piece portrays four fateful encounters between humans and the moon to tell a story of connection and inevitability. Rock concert theatrics collide with interstellar imagery to form a new moon myth in this world premiere.
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.
If you’re a chiptune fan or a circuit bender you might be familiar with my notendo work. In 2001, I helped pioneer the practice of preparing video game systems to intentionally short circuit, creating generative video and digital collage from game data. Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to perform at some legendary events, work with amazing musicians like Anamanaguchi and help establish my practice as a new art form that now falls under the umbrella label of “glitch art.”
This item will officially put you on our SYMPHONETTE hand pan waiting list. No payment is necessary.
The first question that many people have is “how can I get one of these?” If you are looking to get an original PanArt hang, it is available from the makers in Switzerland. There are certain steps involved and if you are offered the chance to buy one, you have to travel to Switzerland to personally choose the instrument.
There are 800,000 sheet music titles available to sighted musicians. There are only about 20,000 available as braille to blind musicians (a fraction of 1%). These stretch goals describe how we can more than double that number with this project!
