Next week not only marks the start of the Interieur biennale in Kortrijk, it’s also the start of Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. Design Acadamy graduate Pieter-Jan Pieters will present his graduation project called Music on Intuition:
“Music on intuition is a project consisting of five instruments that translate your movement into sound. Imagine making a waving motion with your arm would result into a waving sound. When you want to hit a high note, you literally have to reach high, or that tapping your foot or finger would be translated into a rhythm and that the tempo of that rhythm would be controlled by your heart beat.”
The project immediately reminded me of the latest accessories for Teenage Engineering’s fun little OP-1 keyboard, something that has been on my wishlist for years. Unsurprisingly, Pieter-Jan worked as an intern at Teenage Engineering during 2011.
