Kevin Holland and John Staskevich have launched a Kickstarter project for the Luminth, which lets you generate melodies, percussive grooves, and ambient soundscapes.
The Luminth is a minimalist USB control peripheral. To use the Luminth, simply click, turn, and push+turn. The Luminth changes color with the music.
Luminth Orbiter is a generative music software application. Make dramatic changes to the music with a single click. Dive deeper to make refined, subtle adjustments. Or, let Orbiter work autonomously to create music that morphs over time.
The Luminth is the best way to control Luminth Orbiter software, but Orbiter is fully functional with or without the Luminth.
The project is aiming to get $8,000 USD by June 13th, 2013. The Luminth software is available for a pledge of $30 USD, the USB controller is included with pledges of $100+ USD.
