http://vimeo.com/51700038 Drawing inspiration from traditional record players, French new media production company Avoka has created Dyskograf, an interactive sound installation in which visitors are able to create music with just a pen and piece of paper. Instead of using a needle and a vinyl record, Dyskograf is equipped with a camera and custom-designed software that detects felt-tip pen marks drawn on paper records, each of which will create a different sound depending on their locations and how they are drawn. Since the camera is in a fixed position, the musical sequence is read as a loop and sounds like it would be a perfect fit for an electronic music track. In the video above you can see the "graphic disk reader" in action.
