“You can’t quite dance to it, but bar|none has a beautifully-shot video of a strange, invented instrument constructed with some of the technologies we saw last week. As noted then, new support for OSC in the powerful Kyma sound system means the ability to control imagined instruments in more sophisticated, higher-resolution ways. Just days later, bar|none responded to my post with one of his first experiments. It’s just the beginning of his work, so judge it accordingly – think of the first emanations of a newly-created musical instrument – but it’s a reminder that far-out ideas are possible when you combine custom soundmakers with expressive control.” -CDM
OSC and anything else — always a good thing. In this case it is Kyma and the Manta. I’ve never played with a manta personally, but as far as Kyma goes- I’ve had a lot of fun in the past with the Wii Remote’s accelleration and Kyma as a host for all sorts of weird experiments (Floor tiles to the dorian scale, anyone?) But thats just peanuts compared to whats being discussed in this post, which is the future of this concept, and thats about where it starts and stops. It’s just that open ended.
