You’ve got Moves

sound01

Intrigued by the inherent connections between music and movement, designer Pieter-Jan Pieters created a new series of “instruments” which create sound based on everyday actions. His “Sound on Intuition” objects are all MIDI-controlled, simple forms making chosen noises as you tap your finger with one, wave your hand over it like a theremin with another, and even pick up your heartbeat with yet another stethoscope-like sensor. One more of Pieter’s machines allows you to trace over a sketch or drawing, as it emits sounds based on lines and shapes. All allow for new ways to make rhythmic music, whether you are musically inclined or not.
