It started with the idea of Synesthesia; the combination of two senses. So how can you combine sight and hearing? Then, how do you make it so that you can interact with what you hear/see? These are the questions that slowly lead to the first concept prototype.
From here the concept became a new technology! Here you can see the first version of the modern Tingle.
The last year has been about fine-tuning and developing the technology and sound so that you can get one for yourself. It is almost done!

Tingle. (2013)

Tingle is a new musical instrument, which is used to teach music. It looks like the pin-board toy from your youth, except that the 3D landscape that you created with whatever you put underneath it, now translates into musical sound. With your hands you mould, and form the sound to generate a "musical landscape". It is a 3D version of the sound visualizers normally embedded in music softwares and is a common visual representation for sound. This metaphor makes it easier for music students to link their actions to the created sounds.

Made using Processing, OpenCV, Ableton, MAX/MSP, and Absynth.

Masters projects at Technical University Eindhoven (TU/e) in the Netherlands.
