Audio Shaker: Experimental Sampler Shaker

.:Audio Shaker:.

Audio Shaker is a cool experimental hardware/software project that I found online. It is basically exactly what it looks like. You speak into the jar and it captures your sound and you shake it to manipulate the sound.

Video can be found on the site .:Here:.

The audio shaker explores our perceptual understanding of sound. Anything sung, spoken, clapped, whistled or played near it is trapped inside, where it takes on an imagined yet tangible physicality. Sounds caught in this void are transformed, given weight and permanence, reacting directly to the shaker's movements, subtle or violent. Shaken sounds have to settle down before becoming still and silent, behaving more like fluid than transient energy.
