Title: Re:Sound Bottle
Synopsis of work:
This is a music medium that can reproduce a recorded voice as music. It makes a database of sound sources that is managed and used as formal and automatic repetitions, and forms a music medium of the day. I felt something missing in the habitual use of music reproduction media, so I thought to create an interactive music medium that changes. By using everyday voices as sources of music, the sounds that are heard all the time every day carry infinite possibilities and help us reaffirm the enjoyment of music. I hope people can experience their own music.

[ About Re:Sound Bottle -second mix- ]
Experimental sound medium that transforms recorded everyday sounds into music
[ Concept ]
• Allows anyone to create music using sounds from daily life
• Communication that arises from intuitive sound interaction
The conventional way of experiencing music is usually through existing technologies such as the ipod or the radio. However, this style of experiencing music takes place in a given form; is static and as a result leaves us dissatisfied.
To really enjoy music, we need to find music through sounds around us. We need to stop being tied down with new gadgets that provide the music for us, but to search for music ourselves.
A series of ideas like these lead me to create this device.
This creation's main concept is to record sounds from daily life. It is the concept of ‘collecting sounds in a bottle’. You choose the sounds collected in the bottle. Using everyday sounds as a musical component establishes a new understanding of the sounds we listen to everyday. By collecting your own sampling of sounds, you encounter a unique piece of music that can be experienced only once.
This device will bring a smile to anyone, as many will be able to experience the charm of music, leading them to turn music into something they love and adore.
RE: SOUND BOTTLE is an experimental sound medium that creates and rebuilds music from environmental sounds collected in the bottle.
It is possible to use every feature when physically operating the bottle.
Through RE: SOUND BOTTLE, fluctuated and unexpected shapes of music are born by capturing familiar environmental sounds with the physical bottle.
Please experience the fun of creating your own music through interaction with sensuous sounds.
