Description

The XOXX Composer is a different take on a drum machine. It turns the inner functions of sampling, looping, and sequencing, into a tangible, kinetic and sculptural form. Capture sounds from your surroundings or pick samples from records and then play them back on the XOXX Composer by placing the magnets on spinning discs. Simply let curiosity and creativity lead the way to quickly create unique beats away from the computer screen. The project is a result from Royal College of Art’s Design Products platform Object Mediated Interaction within the context of the De-Computation elective. The De-Computation elective is an approach to learning computational thinking – not through programming computers but by taking apart, and re-making a new. t’s about de-mystifying, de- constructing, de-composing, de-coding, de-programming machines, minds, space, and time.
