CONCEPT / Three Dimensional Music is a product that translates the music listening experience into physical movement. Its flexible surface produces a tangible visualisation of which the user can literally see and feel the music they are listening to. This surface is completely flat when turned off. Music brings the object to life, as the surface responds to the input of music. The speed, direction and amount of movement are defined by the digital data of the song that is playing.
BACKGROUND / Tangible items are often perceived as being more valuable than intangible items. Vinyl sales reached a 20 year high in 2013, up 33% from 2012. Vinyl owners shared the opinion that “vinyl is an experience, something that can’t be said for most digital audio.” The digital format has sacrificed experience in return for convenience.
RESEARCH / Below is an insight into the research methodologies which drove the direction of this project.
