Soundbrush

The Soundbrush is a brush that makes sound based on how you use it. Have you ever painted with sound?

Process

In this project the task was to put sound on a interaction that don’t make that much sound. I paint a lot and thought it would be interesting to see how it sounds when you paint. Will it change the way you use the brush?

The technical part of this project is really simple. In the brush there is a flex sensor that gives different values based on with direction the sensor is bent. These values was sent from the Arduino IDE to Ableton through MAX.



This is a really important project for me. It was in this project I realized that the world is just values. You could map almost anything to a computer and use the world as a playground using sensors to create new type of art and new types of movements.

Role
In this project I had the technical role. I developed and prototyped the brush.
