Create music by making marks with a felt pen onto paper

Drawing inspiration from traditional vinyl record players, French new media production company, Avoka, have created the Dyskograf. However, instead of using a needle and a vinyl record, the Dyskograf is an interactive sound installation that allows users to create music by making marks with a felt pen onto paper, and relies on the camera positioned above (and custom designed software) to transform the markings into audio sounds.

Each marking creates a different sound depending on their location and respective contour. As the camera is in a fixed position, the musical sequence is read as a loop, and sounds like it would make for a much more fascinating visual than the increasingly stale “traditional” DJ format. Unfortunately, this impressive concept isn’t going to be arriving in stores any time soon. In the meantime, take a look at the video below to see the Dyskograf in action.
