Last week, I wrote about the ingenious and resourceful initiative fueling the Land-fillharmonic, as well as SoundCloud’s remix challenge involving Metro sounds in Washington, D.C. I used these projects to exemplify creative and musical applications of urban sounds.
What if you could capture your life in a bottle, what would it sound like? Now there’s a way to find out!
Daily life – what would that sound like?
Tokyo-based design student Jun Fujiwara has created a bottle with the ability to capture and remix ordinary sounds with the pop and plug of a cork. Introducing the Re:Sound Bottle (pictured below)!
How is this possible? How does it work?
Fujiwara’s the Re:Sound Bottle captures everyday noises, remixing the various sounds into a different song every time the bottle is opened. (It) imagines everyday interaction with the noises around us, turning them into an auditory record of our day. Instead of passively listening — and not paying attention — to the mundane noises around us, Fujiwara transforms listening into an interactive experience.
