industrial designer ofek has created  ‘ReSound’ — a speaker and recording device for electronic audio production which explores the tangible properties of music. the project contains two elements: the ‘sound-ball’ and the ‘ReSound station’. using the sound-ball mobile sampler, a user can record, store and replay the sounds around them.

the second element of ofek’s project is the ‘ReSound station’ which can be placed in the user’s home or recording studio. the device wirelessly connects to the user’s computer and has multiple functions. it can be used to deploy sampled tracks or act as a mouse to enable an intuitive, quick reshaping of the audio collected on the ‘sound-ball’.

a tangible representation to sound

 

 

I wanted to deal with sound as something tangible that can be seen and touched’ says designer ofek wasserman. ‘sound has many different elements which define it such as pitch, rhythm, tempo, timbre and texture. through a tactile exploration of audio, the design enables an intuitive interaction between user and device.
