Description:

IkeOto ~Sound Arrangement~は普段は発せられると消えていってしまう身近な音を再構成して重ねていくことで、どんな音素材であっても音楽的に生まれ変わらせてしまうメディアアート作品です。
マイクに音を入力するたびに音が重ね合わされていき、どんなにあなたが適当な音を鳴らしていたとしても音楽的なリズムパターンが生成されます。
スピーカーからの音がマイクにそのまま入ってフィードバックしてしまう場合や、上手く音が入らないときには右下のSensitivityスライダーで感度を調節してください。


*How to use

1, Adjust volumes and mic input level via mac preference and sensitivity slider.
2, Input a sound into mic. If the sound is louder than the threshold level, a musical loop will start and mix. If the loops become feedback, please adjust the sensitivity slider.
3, Pressing the Octave Shift Buttons(Right:UP Left:Down), you can change the play speed of newest loop.
4, Enjoy!!!

A VERY EXCELLENT DEVICE - Sound choice of colors. Just leave it on for a while. Try typing with it in the background. ETC>

No Engrish Support - This application has no english menu options, is very slow, and the graphics are very low quality. I would not recommend this to a friend.

Unusable - Needs translation into English for US users.

Review by Chris Combs

Makes music of your everyday life - As described above, this app listens to the microphone and repeats back snippets, permutating them slightly. Each sound gets quieter per repetition, unless it senses you making the sound again. (E.G., it's very good at re-detecting clapping.) This is fun to use in, say, your living room. (Hook it up to a stereo system.) Door slams become dark, portentous industrial music; routine activities turn into happy chiptune. Parties turn into baaad trips. It's infectious! You'll find yourself modifying your behavior to become more rhythmic if you leave it running for a while. Zippers are excellent impromptu instruments, for instance.

Review by David Smithe

Difficult for English Language Speaker - Besides there being feedback from the microphone, there doesn't seem to be any way to save your music file. I'd love to create music this way and save it to listen to later. I hope to see that in the next version. Also, I don't think a lot of people can read Japanese. I can speak a little, but I have difficulty navigating the app. This could be quite great! Keep working on it!

Review by DylanBatesFilms

Interesting concept but needs it in english - This idea is one of a kind. But everything is in japanese. I figured out the program by pressing random buttons and at some point something fell, Causing my computer to record it. I discovered you have to make a loud noise for it to record. But then you can change the sensitivity. By draggin up the slider it will catch smaller sounds. This app has a very interesting app behind it. But the big downfall of it is no english menus. If you have the patience for it then go ahead and download it. But you can get by without it.

Review by SecretBarn

Skip it. - Unless I'm missing something huge (which I almost certainly am, since I can't understand any of the menus), this is pretty lame. As near as I can make out, it records short bursts of sound through your mic, and then loops them with an annoying distortion and produces a mildly-amusing animation. On the other hand, it's free and is easy to remove from your computer.
