The Beatworld looks like a strange planet. A place where you can educe sounds from everything. Inspired by the operability of a beatmachine, this interactive animation clip is controlled by hitting buttons, assigned to the sounds of a drum set. To make it approachable for everyone, a groove is given by a pendulum and a selectable melody loop. The physical linkage makes the controls more intuitive and the design of the shell lets the whole machine appear less engineered.
