Viktor Jan's 'Beatoven' project lets users mix sounds as if they were ingredients to create music through a cooking experience.

Korean new media artist Viktor Jan's ‘Beatoven‘ links the principles of cooking to creating a track as a DJ. Instead of adding ingredients to change the overall taste of a meal, sounds are mixed together to make music.

Like the BeetBox, this project explores new interfaces for creating music. Users are able to mix sounds in a cooking experience, with a pot placed on top of the ‘stove.' ‘Ingredients' in the form of boxes can be dropped in the pot to play different tracks and form a new sound.
