Referring to Hermann Hesse’s book “The Glass Bead Game” in which the glass bead game is closely related to music making we wanted to built a glass beat game in which a player or a group of players can make music by putting marbles on a game board. The idea includes building an instrument for simple music making as well as exploring the possibilities of using the setup as a game with rules focusing on topics like sound, music, spatialization, hearing, psychology, tactical behavior and synesthesia.

The Game was created by Hanna Schraffenberger, Alwin de Rooij and Arnout Terpstra.
