Molecule Synth meets MK-4902 MIDI Keyboard

August 26, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on Molecule Synth meets MK-4902 MIDI Keyboard 

The MOLECULE SYNTH is a unique musical instrument.  It is like a traditional keyboard synthesizer that has been broken into its elements:  speaker/amp, sound generator, and pitch control.  With the MOLECULE SYNTH SET you decide how to put those elements back together using simple, color-coded, interchangeable hexagons.  The MOLECULE SYNTH combines LEGO-interchangeability with Synthesizers with Physical Electronics.

I was inspired to create the MOLECULE SYNTH by experiences circuit bending toys and building my own electronic instruments, and I wanted to make something with sounds that were more wild and less predictable than what comes from traditional keyboards. I wanted an instrument that was more interesting than just pushing buttons, but I also wanted to get away from the “black box” pre-fab technologies that makes us all passive “consumers” using someone else’s designs. So I made the MOLECULE SYNTH to be an open ended, hardware-based, stand-alone musical instrument that is easy to hack & modify, that is DIY to the core, that totally rocks, sounds amazing, and is guaranteed super fun to play!

Made at ADVANCE HACKATHON 2012 in Cologne using a webcam, Python, OpenCV, OSC, MIDI and Ableton Live.

What you need: a camera, Ableton Live, and some code for analyzing the camera image and translating those events into MIDI messages that Ableton Live can turn into sound. It’s the work of Bonn, Germany-based artist/creative coder superquadratic.

There is a pretty weird group on Flickr building album covers in Lego. Tons of famous artists of all genres are represented here with their most memorable albums entirely done in Lego building blocks. As always, fun but entirely useless, hehe. Check it out here >>
