Sound on Intuition

No more toiling away for years to learn how to play an instrument. From now on you can simply transform your feelings into a piece of music. Pieter-Jan Pieters makes it happen with Sound on Intuition. The electronic devices contain sensors that will transform intuitive movements into music. If you lift your hand, the tone will follow it and rise. Your foot tapping the floor and your finger bending will translate into a rhythm. “Many people may be able to express what a piece of music should sound like to them, but taking that step towards composing it will often be too much. And my instruments make this part very simple. All you have to do is listen to your feelings.”
