Beautiful Experimental Music Inspired by Basketball and Isotypes #MusicMonday

 

via hyperallergic

In the track titled “Musique Isotype,” I’m using chopped up and processed basketball sounds to create fractured rhythms and bouncing conflagrations of sound. Basketball sounds are a fantastic source of inspiration for a musician, I find, but to really benefit from the variety and elasticity of basketball rebound sounds, I had to swab entire training sessions, rather than merely sample a short rebound.

This particular track, as well as the entire CD, references Mary and Otto Neurath, the creators of the Isotype concept in the 1930s, in an analogy between Isotype charts to represent big data, on the one hand, and samples from existing sound material to make sense of the ginormous amount of sounds floating around on the internet, on the other hand.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
