Beat Blender, fruity music making

Beat Blender Prototype from Matti Niinimäki on Vimeo.

Beat Blender Prototype by Finnish “One man collective” Matti Niinimäki.

Niinimäki has rigged together a music control device using an old Osterizer blender, and pieces of fruit with embedded RFID tags. Each piece of fruit represents a sound sample, and when dropped ito the blender triggers and loops the sample. Adding more fruit to the mix makes the composition more complex, and by pressing the different blender control buttons (Stir, Puree, Whip, Grate, Mix, Chop, Grind, Blend, Liquefy, Frappé), you can add different effects to the song.

Jamba Juice so needs to do be making their own mix.
