This is a video you want to test the hypothesis that sound rain that, or not than is made in the integrated sound of water droplets hit the thing.

Tuna Knobs – turn every touchscreen into a MIDI / DJ controller with real physical knobs

July 11, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Tuna knobs are control knobs that stick to any touchscreen and let you control DJ and music making apps like you would with dedicated music hardware. Tuna Knobs are designed to give you the tactile precision you need when making music, while giving you the versatility of mobile applications.

Making music is the passion of millions of people and nowadays it’s possible to make music anywhere due to great apps and accessible tablets. However the downside of using a touchscreen is that you miss the authentic feel of twisting a knob on professional DJ gear. Tuna Knobs wants to bring back that feeling to the tablet so you can enjoy the mobility and versatility of your touchscreen with the precise and expressive experience of professional hardware. On top of that Tuna Knobs are small enough to take with you wherever you go so you can transform your tablet into a true DJ station anywhere.
We need your pledge to make these a reality!

A Stylus in the shape of knob, with a small axis in the middle and a suction cup on the bottom. Made to control (music) apps with virtual knobs on every touchscreen device.

So Tuna Knobs stick to your touchscreen using a micro suction cup and translate a turning movement to a touch command. Simply stick them on your screen and you are ready to start twiddling away. Tuna Knobs use conductive rubber to translate turning a knobs into the right signal for your touchscreen, not dissimilar to how a stylus works.

Interactive installation commissioned by Mac Center for the 2014 Estéreo Picnic Festival in Bogotá Colombia.

The installation is a musical and visual instrument where eight users can make music and see the influence of audio waves on non Newtonian fluid placed inside the speakers.
Four iPads were used as user interface controlling 15 inches speakers working with frequencies of 160HZ, 80 Hz, 40 Hz and 31.5 Hz . Four other user interfaces were made using bare conductive paint to control 12 inches speakers working with harmonics of the dominant frequencies.

Experimental: It’s not a kettle, it’s a sound machine, boilophone

July 8, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

I get pretty into playing the kettle here, didnt realise i was in the shot.

“This is not a kettle, it is a synth. It’s a drone synth / sound machine with 3 oscillators, combined by 2 different methods of signal heterodyning to produce interstellar cosmic electronic sounds! This device makes some of the most analogue, yet raw sounds, I’ve ever made with any variations of this circuit! (my patented C493 circuit).

It has two light sensors (on each side of the kettle, towards the front) and two touch contacts on the top. Careful manipulation of these simple control methods yeilds vast and complex vistas of sonic anomalies. Wails like tuning old radios, bleeps like a gameboy, hums like a genuine analogue synthesizer; This drone synth has vast capabilities!”

Checking out the PollySynth – Demo

May 25, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Imagine having a signature synthesizer sound that followed you around in the real world.

What if your sound could interact with others in a physical space?
What does it sound like flying around the room?

PollySynth combines simple UI with fun character design to virtually eliminate the learning curve associated with synthesizers and the technology involved.
PollySynth is a multiplayer polyphonic synthesizer created by Secret Feature.
Synthesizers are controlled by your smart phone, and visualized as members of the PollySynth gang. Spatial audio effects add to the fun as characters respond to the controls and parameters.

PollySynth is currently available as a location specific experience. For inquiries please contact info@pollysynth.com.
