Glasbead, 1999
Selected by: Christiane Paul
Glasbead is a multi-user persistent collaborative musical interface, instrument, and toy that allows players to import sound files and create a myriad of soundscapes. The interface consists of a rotating, circular structure with stems that resemble hammers and bells. Sound files can be imported into the bells and are triggered by flinging the hammers into the bells. While Glasbead creates a contained musical and visual world of its own, it also allows up to 20 players to remotely �jam� with each other. Alluding to and transcending concepts ranging from gaming to musical instruments, Glasbead is a unique rendition of a multi-user multimedia world where sounds and visuals enhance each other.
