Interesting to see the three iterations of the hardware side by side …

Meeting up with Matthias Krebs of DigiEnsemble and AppMusik

I mentioned in my ‘Out and about‘ post the other day that I’d been lucky enough to meet Matthias, so here’s a bit more about our getting together …

It’s always brilliant to meet people who share a passion for mobile music creativity, so when Matthias contacted me and told me that he was going to be in London I really wanted to do everything possible to make sure we could meet up, and I’m very glad that we did.

I’ve known of the amazing work that Matthias and the DigiEnsemble have been doing for some time now, and if you don’t know about what they do then I’d strongly suggest that you visit DigiEnsemble and his music app blog, AppMusik. The work that Matthias has been doing with DigiEnsemble is unique to say the least. I’m not sure of anyone else in the mobile music world that’s doing anything like on the same scale as Matthias.

But that’s not all, Matthias is doing great things in education, running workshops and now moving into research as well.

It was so good to meet him and discover we had so much in common.

So, that Phonebloks thing looks like it’s happening then

Which is so cool really! I hope that it can do something amazing for sound too.

And the goodness is there’s a MIDI retrofit kit

For the bleep drum that is, and it’s very cheap indeed!

Bare Conductive launch their Kickstarter campaign for Touch Board and it’s already 50% funded!

Bare Conductive bring us the Touch Board …

Now anyone can transform touch into sound (and so much more!) with the Touch Board, an easy-to-use Arduino-compatible device.
What is the Touch Board?

The Touch Board is a tool to make your projects interactive, responsive, smart or just fun. Use the Touch Board to change the world around you by turning almost any material or surface into a sensor. Connect anything conductive to one of its 12 electrodes and trigger a sound via its onboard MP3 player, play a MIDI note or do anything else that you might do with an Arduino or Arduino-compatible device.
