This machine was made for an exhibition and I wanted to make the surface of interaction as big as possible.
The grey graphics on the face of the machine visualises how the sound travels trough it.
The wheel with the magnets send away sounds that then travels along the grey path up to the yellow patch cable. There one can either patch the sound through an effect box, like a guitar pedal, or simply patch it up towards the volume slider and then out the speaker. Each wheel has its own speaker. It was all about breaking down the components of a traditional drum machine. To then put them back together in a more understandable way in order to create a clearer and more simplified mental model.
