create music from any sound around you
 
writing music is a varied process, each person having their own preferences to suit their style of music. one thing most people have in common is that often the hardest part of songwriting is starting. i wanted to investigate whether there were other approaches that might yield interesting results, particularly at the ideation stage of making music, helping people to produce and evaluate ideas quickly.

the idea is a handheld granular synthesizer and sampler used for creating quick musical ideas from any sound around you. this is done either by sampling it or using granular synthesis to create entirely new sounds. it is intended to be an aid to your songwriting, helping you to generate ideas, in much the same way an architect or designer might use a sketchbook.
