Ceramic Concept

We have begun looking at how we could use ceramics as an output as we like how the small changes in tone, pitch and volume could be translated on its circular movement while on a potters wheel.

Of course we had to try this out for ourselves and here is John showing off his new found pottery skills.

Below is the first attempts at understanding the forces and intricacy’s involved in using tools on the moving clay.

The start of a concept

We have begun looking into, what we feel, are the strongest ideas from our generation stage. From the beginning of this project we have always been intrigued in the idea of using sound to create something physicalSomething that that the user can take away and be the only person to understand its true meaning.

To do this we have looked into many different areas of artwork to find outputs that we feel could be manipulated in an appropriate way to capture the personal importance of the recording. Finding the connection between emotion and sound has always been an important factor in this project for us. With this in mind we feel that the success of creating a physical object from a personal recording depends on us creating both a personally unique and desirable object.

The interaction between the recording and finished object is also as important for us as the output. As we will be using personal sounds and music we want them to be translated to the object in a positive manner.

Hello world!

Welcome to [Sound by Design]

We are doing a project to find new and innovative ways to create meaningful interactions through the use of sound. This could be between a digital input and an analogue output or visa versa. It could be an object playing along to a specific track or perhaps music that is created depending on the environment.

There’s no need for a strong user involvement. The interaction could involve people, animals, objects or the elements but the main factor whatever we use is going to be sound.

The project has a very open brief and will encourage us to look beyond the world of design for inspiration. There will be a lot of emphasis on experimentation and communication.

Watch this space…
