Little Scream / Made of Imagination

Little Scream / Made of Imagination

 

 

This is the third video we produced for MTV and Sony Xperia, and it features Little Scream! Nada and I are huuuge fans of hers so this really was a dream come true to have her be a part of this project.

In keeping with the unconventional instruments theme, we paired up Little Scream with sound designers Lo and Joseph and circuit benders from Toronto’s InterAccess Electronic Media Arts Center! Together they completely reinvented her song “Canons”. Albert Huh did a superb job capturing this performance. He’s been filming and editing all the videos in this series, and deserves a massive shout out!

Hopefully this video pumps you up to spend the weekend building your own instruments! You still have a week or so to get your submissions in, and remember we’re giving away Sony Xperia phones and Booooooom goodies as prizes!

If you wanna get involved jump over here.

You can see the full gallery of submissions here.

Homemade instruments by Cara Stewart

Homemade instruments by Cara Stewart

A fantastic submission to our “Made of Imagination” project courtesy of Cara Stewart, Austin, Texas. She created 3 really unique instruments! This first one is called “Phonograph” and she built it using a broom head, log, contact mics, amplifyer, speaker, and wooden table.

“Contact mics inside the broom head amplify the sounds of the bristles playing over the log. The bristles act like a needle on a record player, or keys on a music box. The song is determined by the density of texture on the surface of the rotating log.”

See her other instruments below!
