Electro mechanical music machine celebrating the maker and hacker culture
The idea behind INKey was to create a simple interface where anyone could compose a piece of music regardless of musical talent. Inspired by street organs and drum loop machines we wanted to create a new instrument for composing, that would play simple homemade instruments (chimes, cigar box guitar and cymbal). These can be used in unison to create an intricate musical composition, that unlike our inspirations would be intuitive, visual and easy to play.
In collaboration with Andy Butt, Andy Carrera and Dongyuan Li.
