I haven’t mentioned the SoundLab site or project for some time, but now is a good time to talk about it again as the new SoundLab guide is available and the site has been updated.
You might remember what SoundLab is all about, but if you don’t here’s a brief introduction …
“SoundLab aims to find simple and effective ways to help people with learning disabilities to express themselves musically and collaborate with other people using readily available musical technologies. We want to show how technologies can be brought together and combined to allow users new ways to make music.”
The project always aimed to produce this guide and now it’s available. I hope that it’ll be useful. Please do spread the news, forward the link, tweet it etc. I know that everyone on the project would really appreciate it.
“Ambient, spacious, relaxing generative music created from text and emoji. The (intentionally sparse) live music generated in this video by Wotja can be played (without the image) if you have Wotja / Wotja FREE for iOS and you visit this Wotja Music URL from Safari on iOS: http://goo.gl/tXBMdC. Experiment with the settings and retweet your remixed wotja if you wish!
