Machine Records Ambient Noise To Remix Sounds From Reality
Collector is a device that detects sounds and composes them into a unique soundtrack
Moscow-based media artist and musician Dmitry Morozov has created a new machine that detects and records ambient sounds to create a soundtrack of the every day. The project, named Collector, uses a motor, speakers, and rotating stereo microphone that can detect the loudest sounds in a room and swivel to record them clearly.
The process has two phases: recording and playback.
“In the first phase, it records the surrounding sounds until it has gathered 100 samples,” Morozov explains on his website.
