GlitchScape – GlitchScape is “an experimental sound/vision musical instrument designed and programmed by Tomasz Slawnikowski.” I am not sure I entirely grasped the essence of this interesting project, but I will give you my interpretation of it.
Drag the mouse to create a visual blue box. Each box creates a different sound, and you can add as many of these as you want. The more boxes you add, the more sounds are created in the loop. I think this site is best explained by simply entering it, so feel free to skip the rest of this post and jump right in. I asked my brother: “what is this site? I don’t get it” – to which he replied: “Not everything should be understood :-).” This project reminded me of a video art by Ulf Langheinrich and Kurt Hentschläger I saw a while ago. I was deeply impressed by it, which is why I am sharing it with you – it’s also blue. Coincidence?
