Manuel Steffan – Bing!
Bing! is a music composition tool that enables anyone to visually compose and create melodies in an analogue way. Colourful aluminium rods that are tuned to different notes can be freely arranged and played with a sliding steel ball. Simplifying the idea of rhythm into sequence and interchanging the notes helps create intuitively – especially for people without prior musical education. The project derives from my MA thesis on how we – even as adults – need to play in order to learn, as well as from my personal passion for musical instruments.
