ToneMatrix

June26

A wonderful tool and toy from Andre Michelle. ToneMatrix makes even the most tone deaf tub thumper sound like an ambient musical genius. I love it and you will too.

ToneMatrix - its what Aphex Twin uses for everything

in b flat

A fantastic example of interactive narrative. Music contributed from around the world with the only proviso being that it must be ‘in b flat’. A wonderful idea, drawing people with something to say, together through music. Simple and beautiful like all the best ideas.

Play any combination in any order you like.

[murmur] History from the Ground Up

June26

[murmur] is a documentary oral history project that records stories and memories told about specific geographic locations.

We collect and make accessible people’s personal histories and anecdotes about the places in their neighborhoods that are important to them. In each of these locations we install a [murmur] sign with a telephone number on it that anyone can call with a mobile phone to listen to that story while standing in that exact spot, and engaging in the physical experience of being right where the story takes place. Some stories suggest that the listener walk around, following a certain path through a place, while others allow a person to wander with both their feet and their gaze.

It’s history from the ground up, told by the voices that are often overlooked when the stories of cities are told.
