Walked around MWC to find the ultimate musicplayer mobile phone and of course I did not find anything that was breath taking, but after a while I came to enjoy this little music phone from Samsung – a reall little ghetto blaster hehe.

Enjoy!

Manipulate sounds by moving glowing blocks

The reacTable, a new instrument that lets musicians manipulate sounds by moving glowing blocks on a round, transparent table, is wowing festival audiences after it was hand-picked by Björk for use on the singer’s summer tour.

The modular synthesizer mashes up shades of Tron, laser hockey and classic Moogs using open-source reacTivision software and an under-the-hood camera to track blocks that, when added, rotated or moved, combine to produce beeps, whoops and soaring synth lines.

The reacTable‘s developers say it is the latest in an emerging wave of “tangible music interfaces,” but to the touring musicians who play the thing, it’s merely “cool.”

Each block has a different function — like changing a sound wave’s amplitude or acting as a metronome — that is denoted by a unique hieroglyph. Players move, rotate and flip the blocks, run their fingertips over the tabletop’s surface and alter the blocks’ proximity to each other to control the music produced by the machine. Pulsing visuals that light up the tabletop come courtesy of a projector beneath the reacTable’s translucent Perspex surface, making the instrument interesting to the eyes as well as the ears.

Symbian – what´s the big deal

October 15, 2007 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comment 

Sitting in the lounch of a chabby hotel in London trying to figure out what really is the big hype about Open OS? Yeahh, you can download stuff, but who really cares if everything is done by the book on the phone – like my kid he just want to be able to listen to music, and especially doing so on a SEMC Walkman phone, in this case he´s is willing to pay a lot, just to make sure it is a SEMC phone – he doesn´t care whether it is an open OS or not.

Well m to be honest I can see some benefits, they are good at downloading stuff and they are easy to re-program – to get what you really want, LOL, on the phone. I am not sure it is an iPhone i would like to have but it sure comes pretty close. From a music perspective, as being a person enjoying a lot of music, I would adore getting hold of a phone that really matches up to the expectations – that is, can make a fight with the MP3 players out there, so far I have seen quite few that really have the sound encoding that can come up to par with some of the best MP3 players out there.

Well I´m off top grab some Indian food now before hitting the sack

Have a good one, sorry if this input doesn´t make any sense, but I am sick and tired of the way my Open OS phone is working when it comes to playing really good electro music

Cheers
