Services

We are artists, designers and product developers serving clients that include musicians, researchers, enterprises and non-commercial organisations alike. We hear a new world of sound that is beyond noise or chart music - collaborative, contextual, behaviouristic music.

We are creating the sound of the 2020's today. Are you ready for holarchic form in music?

Case studies

Beddit tracks your sleep using a thin film cardioballistography sensor on the mattress. We prototyped and created different smart alarm versions and sleep musification models. The product was adapted to be used for sonification and visualisation of biosignals at marketing events.

We are currently developing our first iOS application, an adaptive sonification environment for everyday activities.

Science

Producing expressive and entertaining music based on biosignal measurement is an interesting research topic. We have so far published one paper on our technology, at the 11th International Symposium on Intelligent Data Analysis in October 2012.
