We’re late but this Japanese “Sound Bottle” is still awesome.
Last year, a Japanese student named Jun Fujiwara won the Naoki Sakai Prize, a “Judge’s Special Prize” at the Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Awards 2012 for his invention, Re: Sound Bottle.
Here’s the description:
This is a music medium that can reproduce a recorded voice as music. It makes a database of sound sources that is managed and used as formal and automatic repetitions, and forms a music medium of the day. I felt something missing in the habitual use of music reproduction media, so I thought to create an interactive music medium that changes. By using everyday voices as sources of music, the sounds that are heard all the time every day carry infinite possibilities and help us reaffirm the enjoyment of music. I hope people can experience their own music.
In a way, it’s an interactive bottle sampler. You’ll be amazed at what this Sound Bottle can do.
