Ever wonder what your scribbles would sound like as music? Thanks to the DYSKOGRAF, a new installation from Cultures Electroni[k], Les Bouillants and Avoka, now you can. A DYSKOGRAF is pretty much what it sounds like: a graphic disk reader, which creates sound based on doodles visitors make using a felt-tip pen. Though it sounds like fun, the point of the installation is not just novelty–it’s meant to stimulate musical education.
DYSKOGRAF’s creators explain in an official description:
“The numeric world is a world of binary choice. The object of DYSKOGRAF is to give room again for accidents in numeric creation, accidents that often favour creativity.”
