seaquence: a cool musical toy

Today’s 5 minutes of woolgathering yielded Seaquence.

It’s a neat composition experiment. You create small wave creatures controlled by a step-sequencer — these wander about in the “sea,” generating neat patterns as voices rise and fall in volume.

You can click & redirect the wave creatures — I enjoyed positioning them in clusters on opposite ends of the space and rapidly shifting the ‘window’ between them. Tonnes of fun. I imagined my little critters tumbling about cacophonously in a single drop of water. Here’s a sample.

According to their website,  Seaquence was created by Ryan Alexander, Gabriel Dunne, and Daniel Massey, with support from Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (San Francisco).
