Sand Band (working title) is a musical sandbox. The box will be scaled to different section that has a corresponding musical instrument. As each user makes a shape or “castle” in the sandbox, the weight of the sand in each section will trigger the note of that the instrument plays. The sandbox will be big enough so that at least two users can play at a time. It is undetermined if the users will initially be aware of that they can create sound with their sand castle or if it will come out as they work.
An additional part of this is to connect it with Rebecca’s and Kevin’s P-Comp Finals. Rebecca’s project creates a visualization based on the user painting/moving pine needles on a canvas. Kevin’s is a water based project that would interact with both of ours. At the time it isn’t determine what the effects would be.
As I am writing this, I am becoming less and less sure that I actually want to do Sand Band. I will decide after play testing.
