DoMi, the sequencer synth is inspired by the classic and nostalgic game of dominos, aesthetically influenced by modern speakers and vintage radios simultaneously. It is minimalistic, with a pop of colour.
The game is indented to be intuitive and easy to understand, with simple rules that enable playful exploration of music from the first attempt. Designed to easily empower collaboration between two or more participants. The sonic qualities adopted stem from four fundamental and important building blocks of modern music : rhythm (groove), timbre (instrument), pitch, and dynamics (volume).
Aimed to be a game, as well as a live music experience, the marriage between two "domino" block side faces explodes in a sound rhythm. As each domino has two faces; one refers to the instrument, and the other, the groove. Exploring this synth is intended to evoke creativity and improvisation for the players as the produced track is a surprise, unknown until the moment touch down occurs. The volume and pitch of the most recently placed block can also be affected by an intuitive wave of the right and left hands above the board, through hidden sensors, for an immersive, full arm motion conductor-like experience. Of course the removal of a block subtracts the sound, which can be placed next to another block for an ever evolving loop of melodic dancing rhythms. The number of combinations are virtually endless.
