InkQuencer: Tangible Experiments In Sound
The Interaction Design Programme at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design shares some of their latest projects with PSFK.
InkQuencer is a digital music sequencer that plays music based on camera input. By drawing patterns on paper and holding it in front of a digital camera, the program allows you to compose beats and rhythms on the fly.
Building on electronic step-sequencers that usually feature a rather dense and impermissible set of controls, the InkQuencer allows for a more tangible, playful and random approach to experimenting with sound and rhythm.
“I´ve worked with music both as a professional DJ and as an interaction designer, and find the play between the physical and the digital extremely interesting. By using one to break the restrictions of the other, you can make making music much more accessible and intuitive”
