8-Bit SoundBox from macumbista on Vimeo.
"8-Bit SoundBox is an generative audio instrument which creates sound patterns from bits shifted around by a single, simple line of code. It is based on the 8-Bit MixTape project created in Indonesia by Lifepatch.org, as well as the analog SoundBoxes I have been creating since 2010. The analog SoundBoxes use touchpoints and feedback to produce circuit-bent drone sounds. The "one-liner" sonic bit-shifting code was discovered by game developers in the demo scene. More complex, layered sounds can be created by combining more players with more instruments. Eventually, the instruments will be able to communicate with each other wirelessly to aid collaboration.
