For any audio peeps out there, hae a gander at the Audiopad, something I’ve been meaning to blog about for years now. From the bumf; “Audiopad is a composition and performance instrument for electronic music which tracks the positions of objects on a tabletop surface and converts their motion into music. One can pull sounds from a giant set of samples, juxtapose archived recordings against warm synthetic melodies, cut between drum loops to create new beats, and apply digital processing all at the same time on the same table. Audiopad not only allows for spontaneous reinterpretation of musical compositions, but also creates a visual and tactile dialogue between itself, the performer, and the audience”. Very postcyberpunk looking, would be sweet to have a muck about with it. Would be even sweeter if they started selling them at some point.. Another beautiful looking piece of technology now with the Saitek Audio A-350 wireless headphones which I rather think looks the shit. Unfortunatly it’s one bit of kit I don’t really have £66.99 to waste on at this moment in time.
