SOUND, MUSIC & TECHNOLOGY

THE STORY

This is a concept project but a working prototype. The program is built by Ableton Live and MaxMSP.

For someone who’s like me, love digital music but doesn’t know how to make it, this concept design could be a simple tool for them to learn basic sound composing and mixing. Logic Pro, Ableton Live and other music editing software is so powerful that you need to spend lots time to learn it. That’s also one of my challenges while learning the tool. 

 

How might we help beginners to enter the field sooner? Are there any interactive or intuitive learning tools/lessons?  And this idea came up as a quick solution.

POST-PROJECT

The project paused at certain point. More and more learning tools came out these years. This concept design could be a real web app in the future. My another goal is to mix the software with other physical sensors and build up an experience which allow users to interact the music with the environment.
