Hi guys, more of a discussion than a question...
Just watched a great little documentary "When Bjork met Attenborough". Was a Channel 4 programme here in the UK. Not sure if it'll be available to those outside the UK but it's on 4oD here. Thought I'd mention it in case anyone had missed it; it's a perfect little programme for us soundies!!
Essentially talks about how nature and the science of sound inspired Bjorks 'Biophilia' album and has some discussion of sound and nature between her and David Attenborough.
There are some really interesting 'experimental instruments' used on her tours, such as pendulum-driven harps, and a tesla coil used to create a bassline. Bjork also had some aps developed to go alongside the album as a way of teaching and exploring sound and interacting with her music.
Has anyone encountered these Biophilia aps, or used them in any sound design work? Anyone created their own bizarre sound-making machines?! Would love to know if anyone's created some device that they use regularly in their sound design work!
