Can music creation be sculptural, like choosing specific tools to carve away from a solid block of material to make a form? If sound could be physically moved, mixed, arranged and ordered, maybe music creation can be understood in a new way. This project allows music creation be made simpler, to a point where the creator is actively creating sound and not choosing options.
