Scottish based SkoogMusic last week launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, aiming to enable production of its ground-breaking musical instrument ‘Skoog 2.0’.
This uniquely expressive, uber-cool cube is designed for everyone to play, but unlike a traditional instrument, you don’t need to read music or memorise your scales to give this a go. All you need is a love of music.
(If you are into your music tech, Skoog 2.0 will ship with a full API, bonus mogo synth and it will be ready to rock with Ableton)
Doctors of musical-tech innovation, David Skulina and Ben Schogler, and their small team of creative-developers, have spent the last 4 years proving their ‘music for everyone’ concept (in the shape of the “Skoog”) in the world of education. Extensively tested, honed and developed internationally, Skoog 2.0 is the evolved result: a nifty, wireless, thing of beauty that we can all play.
Patent-pending technology and a range of music-making apps & software, make it an ‘out-of-the box’ joy to play, allowing for a huge range of abilities, creative talents, and musical preferences. It’s also wireless, iOS compatible and highly responsive, so ideal for anyone interested in being creative with sound. Plus, it’s an awesome musical accessory for the iPad.
“The genius of the Skoog is that it provides a powerful tool for music creation, whilst also being intuitive and easy to use. It’s genuinely expressive, providing you with the same control over musical sounds as a flautist has of a flute or a violinist has over violin.”
– British composer Nigel Osborne, MBE
The campaign ends December 10th, 2014.
