For a while now I have been messing around with what I have called a domestic appliance sequencer. I think I have photos of it on this blog (the start of it). I have not had time to improve it or work on the software and now youtube user arcattack has beaten me to it. The project is very effective though there are some very impressive, percussive sounds being produced.
Touche mr arcattack!
Ever woken up from a day dream and found that you had been subconsciously tapping the beat of the last song you heard frantically on to the nearest available surface? I think people inherently have rhythm obviously some more than others. Recently this weird beat thing that we all seem to have seeping sneakily through our subconscious has been trying to surface in the design and hacking world. I alone have found 3 very blatant examples in a space of hours. Check these examples out and if you are aware of the inner beat surfacing in any other shape or form i would love to know. cheers and gone (its ridiculous how asleep i should be right now).
