Kerim Safa: Graviton


Graviton is a generative music toy which uses the concept of gravitational force in its' main interaction process with sound. Different musical notes and percussive sounds are assigned to the bouncing balls, which users can create but can not interfere with directly. The balls' movement changes according to the amount and position of the gravitational force which is controlled by the user. Collision with the surrounding walls triggers the balls' own sounds. As the user tries to control the sounds, they become more difficult to control and organically, the development of chaos becomes inevitable. Because of its' simple interface, Graviton can be an experimental playground for both educated musicians and non-musicians.
