Noise Machine Ideas

Noise Machine Ideas

1. Seismo-phone

Develop a percussive instrument that is played by the movement of tectonic plates.

2. Emotion-based Music

Create an EEG-based musical instrument that is played by changing emotions.  Tones will be mapped to different brain wave activity.  Changing the brain waves, or emotional state, will produce a different sound.

3. Controlled Fall

The collision of individual objects to the ground will produce individual tones.  The exact angle of collision is indeterminate.  So, there is more of a narrow range of sound in which an object will make.  In the seeming randomness, the player can discover ways to play with the fall to produce a range of intentionally predictable and unpredictable sounds.
